For nearly 40 years, Jeremy Rabkin has been a rare conservative voice inside liberal academia: first as a professor at Cornell University, and now as a professor at the Antonin Scalia School of Law at George Mason University.

During a long conversation with The Jamie Weinstein Show, Rabkin discussed his opposition to Donald Trump during the 2016 election, how he thinks Trump is doing now that he is in the Oval Office, the state of the conservative movement, his new book on cyber warfare, and his influences.
