Trump suffering an ‘erosion’ of his base — and it spells disaster for his campaign: CNN analyst

Published

on

On Thursday, CNN political director David Chalian broke down one of the most ominous numbers for President Donald Trump in the new polls showing him down double digits to former Vice President Joe Biden.

“So in the approval, I think we see that down to 84 percent among Republicans,” said Chalian. “Obviously, still, most Republicans are with the president … but it’s this little slippage that is actually significant. In the horserace, in the Biden versus Trump matchup, he gets 84 percent of Republican support. Joe Biden is in the 90s.”

“So there’s a little bit of erosion from key constituencies here, his fellow Republicans,” said Chalian. “And just a little bit of an erosion in your base when your entire strategy for three and a half years has been all about jazzing up that base, not about trying to win the middle — the middle is gone for Donald Trump right now — but now we’re seeing, because of his handling of the virus, this chipping away at the core supporters as well. That’s a problem, given the way he’s built his entire approach for the last three and a half years.”

Investigative reporter David Cay Johnston explains when you’ll see Trump get indicted

Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter David Cay Johnston appeared Thursday on CNN, where he explained when he believed President Donald Trump would be indicted.

After receiving a subpoena from New York prosecutors last year, Deutsche Bank reportedly handed over detailed records about their dealings with Trump, according to the New York Times. The subpoena indicates that the investigation of Trump's family business is more expansive than previously thought.

"Prosecutors already have the basic tax information on Donald Trump. Your state tax return is virtually identical to your federal return, and the IRS shares tax information with the state," Johnston explained to CNN host Brianna Keilar.

Dr. Fauci says his family is being threatened because of a ‘completely crazy’ backlash against science

Published

Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNN's John Berman on Thursday that he and his family are facing death threats because some Americans are having an irrational backlash against scientists during the COVID-19 pandemic.

When asked by Berman about the threats he's received, Fauci turned it into a broader discussion about America's divisive politics.

"You know, there's such divisiveness right now in this country, John, I mean, I can't explain it," he said. "The kinds of things that you see in society, you have a lot of outlier people that do things that are almost inexplicable, where the push back against science is in a way that gets translated into threats to me, my daughters, my wife. I mean that is completely crazy, it really makes you shake your head."

WATCH: CNN fact checker shows how Trump campaign ‘egregiously altered’ Biden photos in new ad

Published

on

CNN fact checker Daniel Dale on Thursday showed how President Donald Trump's campaign has been blatantly manipulating photos of former Vice President Joe Biden to make it look like he has spent the last year sitting in his basement.

While appearing on "New Day," Dale dissected images of Biden in Trump's new ad and showed how the campaign used Photoshop to put the photos in a completely different context.

"[The ad] uses three misleading images, one of which is egregiously altered," Dale said. "That first image shows Joe Biden speaking at a town hall in Iowa outdoors at a nature preserve... what the ad does is remove the microphone from his hand and remove the trees, replacing it with a wall to make him seem like he's alone and not talking to anyone."
