President Trump announced he'd tested positive for COVID-19 Friday. His doctors say his health continues to improve and he could be discharged as soon as Monday. This hour, we discuss what the president's condition means for his job as commander in chief, for the campaign and for the coming election. We also examine the implications of a growing number of U.S. senators testing positive for COVID-19 on the confirmation process for a new Supreme Court nominee. And we hear from a Middlebury College senior working on tracking the White House COVID-19 outbreak.
Our guests are:
- Lisa Holmes, University of Vermont associate professor specializing in American judicial politics, constitutional law and gender and law
- Dante Scala, political science professor at the University of New Hampshire studying elections, campaigns, voter behavior and the presidential nomination process
- Benjy Renton, Middlebury College senior and student journalist working on tracking the White House COVID-19 outbreak
