Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Arun Gupta about the Trump administration.
It is hard to believe that four years of the Trump presidency are finally coming to an end. A collective trauma, exacerbated by a deadly pandemic and economic collapse, culminating in a violent invasion of the Capitol, has left Americans reeling. White supremacist violence is resurgent after Twitter waited too long to silence its chief proponent, Donald Trump. Four years ago, we spoke with our news correspondent Arun Gupta who had rightly predicted the ethos of ethnic cleansing that was at the heart of the Trump administration.
Arun Gupta is an investigative journalist who has written for the Washington Post, The Nation, Raw Story, The Guardian, and Jacobin. He is also a regular news correspondent for Rising Up With Sonali.
