US Votes as Democracy Is Under Attack

US midterm elections have traditionally been a referendum on the president. But in 2022 even Joe Biden wants the vote to be all about his predecessor, Donald Trump, who still dominates the GOP.

In this episode of GZERO World – and for the first time in front of a live studio audience — Ian Bremmer speaks to New York Times Chief White House Correspondent Peter Baker and New Yorker staff writer Susan Glasser, who’ve just co-authored a new book about the Trump presidency.

Baker and Glasser explain how they had planned to become foreign correspondents in 2020 but after Trump’s win decided to stay in DC, covering him like being foreign correspondents in their own town. What’s more, even out of office, they say Trump still looms large over the GOP, and continues to influence US politics like an “active crime scene.

And, of course, there’s always Trump’s bromance with Vladimir Putin, who share more in common than might immediately meet the eye.
