The Swamp: Episode 1 - The enduring power of Trumpism

Sunday Edition

We begin a 4-part series leading up to the American midterm elections, which many say will be the most consequential in American history. Despite mounting scandals, investigations, and the guilty pleas and criminal convictions of his associates, U.S. President Donald Trump's approval rating remains in the low 40's.

Michael talks to David Bromwich, professor of English at Yale University.
