A revelatory investigation into the astonishing story of President Trump, the virus and the battle for the White House

As America goes to the polls to judge President Trump on his handling of a superpower in a time of pandemic, in Trump’s Coronavirus Catastrophe Matt Frei investigates the President’s policies, actions and decisions during a catastrophe that has cost over 200,000 American lives, with revelations from White House advisors and insiders including senior White House Covid Task force staffer Olivia Troye and former National Security adviser John Bolton, as well as other whistle-blowers, top US scientists, the President’s niece Mary Trump, and loyal Trump supporters.

Trump's personal encounter with the virus and his triumphant return from hospital is the final twist in this urgently topical account of the President’s extraordinary battle with Covid. With Donald Trump saying he may not accept the ballot result, the catastrophic pandemic may yet lead up to an election that is a catastrophe for American democracy.
