Ep. 59: Vladimir Putin Is Coaching Donald Trump In How To Be an Even More Powerful and Dangerous Authoritarian

Simon Rosenberg is president of the New Democrats Network and the New Policy Institute, a liberal think tank based in Washington, DC. He has served as a senior advisor to the Democratic Party at the highest levels and has worked in two presidential campaigns, including a senior role in the 1992 Clinton “War Room”.

Simon Rosenberg shares his thoughts on what issues should be prioritized during the first 100 days of a Joe Biden presidency. Rosenberg also explains how Donald Trump does not intend to win the 2020 presidential election but rather to steal it and then engage in a full-on political crackdown against any American who dares to oppose him.

Rosenberg also suggests that Donald Trump is being mentored by Vladimir Putin and other authoritarians -- and then acting on that tutelage as he unleashes his federal secret police in places such as Portland and conspires in plain sight to keep the American people from voting by various means including interfering with the U.S. mail.
