How Trump Shook Up American Democracy — & Nearly Severed Ties With Europe | GZERO World

How Trump shook up American democracy — & nearly severed ties with Europe

Ian Bremmer discusses US politics and the upcoming midterm elections with DC power couple Susan Glasser and Peter Baker. Glasser is a Washington columnist for the New Yorker, and Baker is the chief White House correspondent for the New York Times. They recently co-authored a new book about the Trump presidency.

The conversation, which for the first time in the show's history was recorded in front of a live studio audience, looks at the key issues in the midterm election and the Trump factor. Baker and Glasser had planned to become foreign correspondents in 2020, but because of Trump's win decided to stay in DC. Even out of office, they say Trump still looms large over the GOP, and continues to influence US politics like an "active crime scene."

Trump Damaged US Credibility | GZERO World

Susan Glasser: Trump damaged US credibility

The Trump presidency might be over (for now), but The New Yorker staff writer Susan Glasser views it as an "active crime scene" because Trump remains influential in current — and perhaps future — US politics.

What's more, some of his most controversial moves are still having ripple effects today. Like threatening to pull out of NATO.

On GZERO World with Ian Bremmer, recorded for the first time in front of a live studio audience, Glasser explains how Trump's disdain for the alliance caused great uncertainty among its other members, even as NATO has become more united than ever before to respond to Russia's war in Ukraine.

Putin & Geopolitical Catastrophe | GZERO World

Putin and geopolitical catastrophe

What do Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin have in common?

"They're very different characters, but a similar rule applies, which is when somebody tells you who they are, you should listen," New York Times journalist Peter Baker tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World, for the first time in front of a life studio audience. Baker co-authored a book on Putin with The New Yorker staff writer Susan Glasser, and the pair now have a new book out about the Trump presidency.

One thing that bothers Glasser when people talk about Putin is whether or not he'll accept an off-ramp to deescalate from the West. He won't.

Behind Trump’s Public Theater: Real Attacks on US Standing | GZERO World

Behind Trump’s public theater: real attacks on US standing

Right before Donald Trump was elected US president in 2016, Peter Baker and Susan Glasser were about to get overseas correspondent gigs at The New York Times and The New Yorker, respectively. Both turned it down, deciding to stay in America to cover the Trump presidency.

But what ensued was so crazy that "we got to be foreign correspondents in our hometown," Glasser tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World, for the first time in front of a live studio audience.

Trump was something no one had ever seen before in US politics. He was "from another planet in terms of Washington," says Baker. And he didn't change his style right to the very end: the Jan 6. Capitol insurrection he spurred.

US Midterms: All About Trump | GZERO World

How Trump dominates the GOP & "impressed" these DC journalists

Former US President Donald Trump may not be on the ballot for the upcoming midterm elections, but yet again he'll loom large over the vote. Especially for Republicans.

The election is all "about his dominance of the party. It's about currying favor with the king," New York Times journalist Peter Baker tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.

Baker — who's co-authored a new book about the Trump presidency with The New Yorker staff writer Susan Glasser — believes one thing Trump accomplished in his four years in the White House was becoming the most transparent president in US history.
