An Irishman in America (Re-Electing Trump with Marion McKeone): Episode 365

July 31, 2020

Marion McKeone, Ireland’s foremost reporter on the United States, joins Jarlath for a new weekly mini-pod series in the lead up to the most important Presidential Election in living memory. Each week Jarlath and Marion will examine the most recent development in the race for the White House. The first episode looks at the current shift in momentum away from Trump, his rambling Tulsa address and the impact of the murder of George Floyd.


McKeone is US correspondent for The Sunday Business Post and Today FM and was formerly US editor for The Sunday Tribune. She has also written for The Guardian, New York Times, and The Irish Times, and is a regular contributor to RTÉ current affairs programmes. She has covered all the major political events in the US from 9/11 and through the presidencies of Bush, Obama, and Trump.
