Author Tim O’Brien, who wrote “TrumpNation,” on Monday weighed in President Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric, which includes calling himself a “nationalist” and accusing the media of being the “enemy of the people.”

“Dog whistles are silent. This is a fire alarm,” O’Brien said on MSNBC. “There’s nothing quiet. It’s not new. Trump has been engaging in this kind of activity for decades.”
