In the immediate aftermath of Donald Trump’s election as president, Amy Siskind, a former Wall Street executive and the founder of The New Agenda, began compiling a list of actions taken by the Trump regime that pose a threat to our democratic norms. Under the headline: “Experts in authoritarianism advise to keep a list of things subtly changing around you, so you’ll remember” Siskind’s “Weekly List” began as a project she shared with friends, but it soon went viral and now has more than half a million viewers every week.
Amy’s national radio and television appearances include CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, PBS and NPR. She is also a frequent contributor to The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, POLITICO, and The Hill.
