Nightmare Scenario: A Stark Behind the Scenes Look at How Trump Mishandled the Pandemic

Estimates now say 900,000 Americans died as a consequence of the COVID pandemic.  But estimates suggest 40-90 percent of those deaths could have been avoided if the Trump Administration acted more swiftly, more effectively or more in concert with the advice of scientists.  A new book dives deep into what happened behind the scenes in the administration and on this episode, we talk with one of the authors, Yasmeen Abutaleb.  Join Ryan Goodman of NYU Law School, Dr. Kavita Patel of the Brookings Institution and host David Rothkopf for a discussion of this new best-seller, “Nightmare Scenario–Inside the Trump Administration’s Response to the Pandemic that Changed History.”
