‘Utah Politics’ podcast: The president tests positive, debate wrap-up and Republican Voters Against Trump

Utah Politics with Bryan Schott

News broke late Thursday that President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump both tested positive for the coronavirus. How might this affect the presidential race going forward?

Salt Lake County Council member Aimee Winder Newton joins host Bryan Schott to discuss the top political stories from the past week including the presidential and gubernatorial debate, the backlash from Republicans against Utah’s state of emergency because of the coronavirus and Sen. Mike Lee testing positive for the virus and a report that Trump trashed Latter-day Saints in private.

Schott also talks with Tim Miller, the political director for Republican Voters Against Trump. They wrap up the presidential debate and talk about why moderate Republicans are turning against the president. Miller also is a writer-at-large for The Bulwark, and hosts “Not My Party” on Snapchat.
