Donald Trump listens to as Dr Deborah Birx, the White House Coronavirus Coordinator, speaks

In our latest 15-minute Journey Through Trump-Land, I chat with talkRADIO’s Alexis Conran and Gloria de Piero about Donald Trump’s danger to the American public.

Donald Trump is in a world of his fantasies. Coronavirus isn’t going to go away, but he’s telling himself it will go away.

We review the latest on the varying status of the stay-at-home orders across US states, and we consider Trump’s vindictive attacks on Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

There is evaluation of the unsupported claims by Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo diverting blame to China, and the political effect of the highest US unemployment since the Great Depression.

When an authoritarian leader is in trouble — and Donald Trump is in effect an authoritarian leader — he goes to his population and says, “You’ve got to stick with me because we have enemies outside (China) and inside (Democrats, fake media).”

2016 was a wake-up call: if you can turn black into white, up into down, and enough people ride with it, you can get political shocks.

It’s a biggest task for Trump to turn black into white in this blackest of times, but you cant rule it out.”

We also explain Trump and Attorney General William Barr intervening to try and quash the guilty pleas of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, “almost to pervert the course of justice”, as they continue the quest to bury the Trump-Russia affair.
