John Knefel // The Escalation of Trump's Authoritarianism

John Knefel offers insight on the increasingly authoritarian practices of President Trump which began during his campaign and have continued into his administration. He identifies some of the most prevalent behaviors, which include public attacks on the judiciary, using his base to isolate those he identifies as enemies, and most recently, his criticism of Jeff Sessions who recused himself from ongoing investigations into Russia.

Molly and John Knefel are hosts of the longrunning progressive politics podcast, Radio Dispatch.
