Former Congressman Holt on What We Can Do in a Trump World

Rush Holt

America’s leadership in the world has always been due to the scientists and engineers and their support from the Federal government. They eradicated polio, invented the transistor which gave us computers and the internet, got us to the Moon and sent robots to Mars. Our leadership in science and engineering is jeopardized by the “do-nothing” attitude of President-elect Trump and his cadre of truth deniers.

New Jersey’s former Congressman Rush Holt is now the Director of the American Academy for the Advancement of Science, and his group put together this short video on what ordinary citizens can do to counteract Trump’s destructive tendencies toward science.
