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. He also poked at constitutional norms again, joking about potentially seeking a third term with the support of his fans. Will the Trump brand of politics leave when he does?

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.
