President Trump officially launches his re-election campaign this week, but he’s doing so with a lot of the same messaging tactics that the American public has come to expect during his first term: misinformation, spin, and lies. This week, he denied stories about internal poll numbers from his campaign showing him trailing candidate Joe Biden in some key electoral states.

Or has he forever changed how campaigns are waged? Jim Braude was joined by Glen Johnson, a former Boston Globe reporter and former senior advisor to Secretary John Kerry; and Tom Whalen, associate professor of social science and American history at Boston University.
