Abstract

Since his election campaign, President Trump has had an adversarial relationship with the news media, branding them the “enemy of the people” after his inauguration. Porismita Borah writes that during the current Covid-19 emergency, the President has continued to fuel public distrust for the media as well as making inaccurate statements about the threat the virus poses. She argues that Trump’s poor relationship with the media has made the pandemic even worse, as many of his supporters ignore advice from authorities like the Centre for Disease Control.
