In today’s email, we have new Navigator polling on the severity of the pandemic — and on who Americans trust, Fauci or Trump. In the middle of this escalating “fall surge,” Trump has chosen to fight with our top infectious disease expert — as he continues pretending nothing’s wrong. We also look at the latest in the worsening economic crisis, including who is being hit the hardest.

It’s been 226 days since President Trump said we’d soon have zero cases in the U.S. We now have more than 8 million cases and 220,000 deaths in the U.S., …


We are staring something truly absurd in the face: an entire Republican Party leadership hellbent on personally spreading the virus, as infections decimate their ranks while they fail to combat the rising number of cases among the American people. This is ridiculous. Trump is hitting the campaign trail, even though he’s sick. Senate Republicans are starting in-person SCOTUS hearing to steal a Supreme Court seat, despite committee members being infected and others, including Lindsey Graham, refusing to get tested. All as the nation’s outbreak gets worse. We go through it all in today’s email.

Given the urgency and severity of the news of Trump’s diagnosis, we’ll be back in your inbox on a near-daily basis for the foreseeable future, including on Wednesday with the latest Navigator polling on how the American public is viewing President Trump’s illness.

In today’s email, we examine how Trump has spent this week, including during the debate, lying about coronavirus, downplaying the threat, and overruling experts — even as the virus surges and outbreaks across the country get worse. We also have new Navigator polling on the pandemic, which includes some indicators that Americans may be feeling the onset of a new “wave” of the virus. Finally, we look ahead to this morning’s unemployment numbers and tomorrow’s jobs report and how they will reveal the economic damage of Republicans’ decision to ignore more relief while instead rushing a partisan SCOTUS power grab.
