He is frequently called on to explain American 2nd Amendment issues, healthcare and US social issues.

He also appeared on “Frost Over the World” with the late Sir David Frost on al Jazeera as well as other local and international broadcasters.
Charlie Wolf correctly called both the Brexit Referendum as well as the 2017 USA Presidential election, even in the face of much derision he was proven right. According to Wolf this was by understanding the real feelings of the British and American working and Middle classes.
