The Damaging Legacy Trump Leaves Behind
On this edition of Your Call, we're marking Donald Trump’s last full day in the White House by discussing the damage he and his administration have done, from their failures to address the COVID crisis and the destruction of the administrative state to a broad scale rollback of decades of environmental protections and the separation of immigrant children from their families, many of whom have still not be reunited.
