UPDATE, JUNE 21:
I joined talkRADIO’s Nick de Bois on Saturday afternoon for a roundup of a “good week for civil rights — marches and Supreme Court decisions — and a very bad week for The Donald”, hours before Trump’s failed rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
We review John Bolton’s revelation, including Trump’s appeal to Chinese President Xi Jinping to help him in the 2020 election. And we ask if Joe Biden’s “leadership and responsibility” will take him into the White House.
ORIGINAL ENTRY: I joined BBC Radio Scotland’s Isabel Fraser on Saturday to discuss Donald Trump’s political difficulties amid Black Lives Matter marches, Coronavirus, Supreme Court decisions, and John Bolton’s forthcoming books.
I set out how Trump is now on the defensive in his fight against the US system. Failing to manage the crisis over the pandemic and to portray the protests as violent and illegitimate, he is now threatening to override the judicial branch by packing the Court.
That also appears a lost cause. But can Trump save himself, even with more revelations about his pursuit of foreign interference for his re-election, by undermining or even postponing November’s vote?
