Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Dr. Cynthia Miller-Idriss about the new global far-right.
Even though President Donald Trump was resoundingly defeated at the polls on November 3rd, losing the popular vote by many millions, his refusal to concede and his relentless attempts to overturn the election results have generated deep anger among his already triggered base.
Most Republicans simply refuse to accept that Joe Biden won the election.
The Arizona state GOP suggested Trump supporters be willing to die for their cause, armed threats against election officials are rising, and some far-right figures like Rush Limbaugh are openly discussing secession.
The rise of an extremist hate movement emboldened by President Trump and his allies in the Republican Party might be the biggest threat facing the United States today.
