With next weeks appearance of Robert Mueller before Congress, how is the Trump team preparing? Well, he attempted to turn around his defeat on getting a citizenship question on the U.S. census somehow into a victory that will appeal to this base. He has threatened to round up at least 2,000 undocumented immigrants in ICE raids. He got into a spat with the British Ambassador to the U.S. He released a tape of him kissing a woman that was supposed to prove he didn't kiss her, at least not on the lips.
So, with all of the news noise who is talking about the potential damage to Trump of Mueller's appearance before Congress? In mainstream media, Erin Burnett of CNN seemed to be the lone voice questioning whether Trump is carrying out a diversion plan to take attention away from Mueller. No doubt he is multitasking, distracting and courting his base while implementing policies that will haunt us for years to come.
Our panelists will weigh in on the latest on migration and child torture at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Also, religious fundamentalism " Christian Evangelicals are key to Trumps base. Some say he is touched by the hand of God. What role has religion played in divide and rule? In giving comfort to the poor?
And, our panelists will also give their thoughts on the presidential election thus far.
Our panelists are Laura Carlsen, Jackie Goldberg and Dr. Gerald Horne
