With just over two months to go until the November election, Democrats have been working on getting Donald Trump out of office by focusing on his character. In a new book “The Opportunity Agenda,” former Kansas City Mayor Sly James and real estate executive Winston Fisher say the party needs to look past the election and work on revamping its policy platform to help struggling Americans – especially amid a pandemic and an economic crisis. James joined Errol to discuss the importance of helping the middle class by investing in small businesses, increasing access to child care and improving education. And he talked about his experience leading Kansas City, Missouri, and weighed in on the influence of money in politics.
