Also: The poorest state of the union is Mississippi, but its capital city, Jackson, has a mayor, Chokwe Antar Lumumba, who says he wants to make Jackson “the most radical city on the planet.” D.D. Guttenplan spent a week there—he reports on what he learned.
Plus, Amy Wilentz talks about Ivana Trump’s new memoir, Raising Trump—stories about Don Jr., Ivanka, and little Eric, and their mom and dad. It’s like a reality show about “Real Housewives of Trump Tower.”
