Event description
All eyes are on Donald Trump, whose response to the Coronavirus pandemic has caused deep divisions within the US.

About this Event

Despite the president’s claims that America is “leading the world” in the fight against the disease, the country is seeing a steady rise in infections and deaths, with contradictory and increasingly bizarre advice coming from the presidential podium.

Will Trump’s failure to bring the virus under control imperil his chances of re-election in November? Will he be hurt or helped by his advice to people in key battleground states to defy the lockdown and “liberate” themselves? And what does it mean for a man who was going to campaign as the saviour of the US economy that the country is heading for a massive downturn?

In the next of our Coronavirus explained series, we will be joined by Guardian world affairs editor Julian Borger, Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland, and Professor Sarah Churchwell of the School of Advanced Study to discuss a critical campaign in the age of coronavirus.

Running time: 60 minutes
