Until recently the Democratic primaries have dominated the news, but it has gone quite around the election campaigns. The corona virus and the Trump administration’s crisis management have seized the headlines. In this episode of America’s Choice, Tyson Barker, Deputy Director and Fellow at the Aspen Institute Germany, and David Deißner, Executive Director at Atlantik-Brücke, speak with Astrid Dörner, U.S. correspondent at Handelsblatt, and Sudha David-Wilp, Deputy Director of the Berlin Office and Senior Transatlantic Fellow at the German Marshall Fund, about Donald Trump’s handling of the corona virus situation, the expected economic consequences of the pandemic, and its impact on the U.S. election campaigns. They also discuss how the pandemic plays into Trump’s chances of re-election and how Joe Biden, the frontrunner in the Democratic presidential race, responds to the COVID-19 situation.
