Sen. Cory Booker joined Shelby and Ike to discuss his proposed policies as a Democratic candidate* for 

President, policies, he argues, that will bring the country back together. He believes that his appeal to African-Amercian voters makes his candidacy viable and that Hilary Clinton's 2016 loss was partly due to her failure to appeal to the lived experiences of the diverse nature of the Democratic Party. And he describes how his engagement in the African-American community drives his policy. 

*As of January 13, 2020, Senator Cory Booker has suspended his campaign.
