We are less than 30 days away from the election and the President of the United States would have you believe that he’s got it all under control. His positive COVID-19 diagnosis? He feels “better than I did 20 years ago!” A growing threat from white supremacist militia groups? “Not a right-wing problem.” America itself? “MAKING IT GREATER THAN EVER BEFORE!”
Following a whirlwind few days in the headlines, Elamin calls up two journalists with critical insight. First, Bloomberg News’ White House reporter Josh Wingrove is back to give us the latest update on the President’s health.
And Julio Ricardo Varela, host of political podcast “In The Thick,” rewinds to Trump’s refusal to condemn white supremacists at the debate. He worries that key issues — like systemic racism and the pandemic’s disproportionate impact on people of colour — are getting buried by the constant barrage of breaking stories.
