Mr. David Nakamura, White House reporter of The Washington Post, shared his views on the Trump administration and the upcoming U.S. Presidential election. He noted that President Trump’s approval ratings have tumbled due to his handling of the pandemic and response to the racial justice protests across the U.S. Earlier this year, the President had hoped to center his reelection campaign around a strong economy, but he is now trying to find new messages, such as maintaining law and order, strongly supporting the development of a vaccine, opposing mail-in voting and criticising China. A total of 50 people attended this online meeting.
