Anchor Chris Hayes interviewed Reich about the growing concern that President Donald Trump's trade wars are risking plunging the nation into a recession.

"As somebody who has been through a number of business cycles, has watched this administration and watched the sort of last administration working through recovering from Great Recession, where do you see us right now?" Hayes asked.

"Well, the fundamentals are actually, Chris, a little bit fragile," Reich replied.
