Dr. Alan Chartock's Morning Commentary

Jul 3, 2019

WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock discusses President Trump's claim that the military is "thrilled" to participate in his Fourth of July celebration in Washington on Thursday, while MSNBC says it will not air the event live. 

He also comments on reports that the Trump administration has begun printing the 2020 census — without a citizenship question. Also in the headlines: a government watchdog report has detailed overcrowding and dire conditions at border detention facilities along the southern border.
