Documenting the Trump presidency: An interview with The Guardian’s David Smith

It is November 2016, and David Smith is at the New York Hilton hotel for Donald Trump’s election night party. Trademark scarlet caps are displayed in glass cases, like holy relics promising to make America great again.

The evening begins quietly, with few expecting a Trump win. But as the results roll in on giant television screens, excitement bubbles through the gathering crowds.

“Gaffers who claim the winters were harder when they were boys are right,” reads a Time magazine article from 1939. “Weathermen have no doubt that the world at least for the time being is growing warmer.”

The weathermen’s warnings are now a dark ultimatum as climate change threatens the world as we know it.
