In this second instalment of our new An Irishman In America series Marion McKeone returns to talk about the latest developments in the US.
This week we saw Donald Trump declare that Black Lives Matter is a symbol of hate and consistently refuse to wear a mask. Further questions of voter suppression were also raised and saw Joe Biden streak ahead in the polls. There was even a suggestion that he may drop out of the race on this basis.
