COVID-19 Gives Trump Immense Political Power

COVID-19 is an international emergency, and this has given Donald Trump immense powers. Ken Klippenstein of The Nation, joins Thom Hartmann to talk about the autocratic powers presidents are granted in times of national distress. In his most recent article for The Nation, Klippenstein explains how a leaked Customs and Border Protection directive allows the agency to actively surveil and detain individuals suspected of carrying the illness—indefinitely.
