Donald Trump is the billion-dollar candidate who doesn’t need to fundraise. So, does he actually want the presidency? In this week’s Political Gabfest Slate Plus bonus segment, John Dickerson, Julia Ioffe, and David Plotz discuss the candidate’s unique trail to the White House and how he could potentially redecorate the Oval Office—Trump-style.

The Gabfesters also discuss the changing role of American ex-presidents. From Eisenhower to Clinton, what does it take to keep a former commander-in-chief in the public eye? Tune in for more.

Here’s what the other podcasts discussed in their Slate Plus bonus segments from the past week:
