How Far Will Donald Trump Go To Cling To Power?


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Sasha Abramsky about Trump's cling to power.

For months President Donald Trump has been laying the groundwork to call the election results into question if it looks like he did not win. His supporters and he have claimed that not only does he deserve second term, but even more because of the years he faced scrutiny from the Mueller investigation and impeachment trial.

Trump’s active thwarting of vote-by-mail systems, his encouragement of his supporters to vote twice, his use of the White House as a convention prop, all show that he is willing to go to any lengths to cling to power. The fear is so real that even some Republicans are terrified.

Read his new piece, the cover for the September issue of The Nation, called “Is Trump Planning a Coup d’État?HERE.

Sasha Ambramsky, writes regularly for The Nation, is the author of several books, including Inside Obama’s Brain, Breadline USA, and, most recently, Jumping at Shadows: The Triumph of Fear and the End of the American Dream.
