David Cay Johnston is the founder and editor of, a nonprofit news service. He has reported on Donald Trump since the 1980s, and his most recent book is “It’s Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration is Doing to America.” In their conversation, Johnston tells host Robert Scheer that through his policies in office, Trump is turning on the very people who helped elect him.
