Will Trump’s coronavirus strategy lead him to victory?

In the last days of the US election campaign, we look at the response to COVID-19 and its influence on the ballot box.

Host Steve Clemons talks to Rick Bright, a government scientist who was forced out of his job for pushing back against the White House, and filmmaker Alex Gibney, whose new documentary – Totally Under Control – traces the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Were science and common sense sacrificed for political gain in the Trump administration? Why were other countries able to ramp up testing and containment procedures much faster than the United States? Why were masks turned into a political statement?

We take a deep dive into the White House’s response to the world’s biggest public health challenge.
