From: The Bottom Line

Despite the polls, can Trump win a second term?

Are Americans still enamoured of Trump’s craving for attention and upsetting the status quo?

This week we talk to Rick Gates, who – as deputy to Paul Manafort, the head of President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential bid – had a front seat to the historic events of that campaign.

Gates and Manafort went on to be indicted in the Mueller investigation, and he has just published his memoir – Wicked Game: An Insider’s Story on How Trump Won, Mueller Failed, and America Lost.

With less than 20 days to the election, Gates tells host Steve Clemons that Trump still has the admiration of millions of Americans, who love his impulsiveness and distaste for protocol and bureaucracy.
