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.

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.
