Re: Susan Estrich

Susan Estrich wrote an op-ed critiquing the coronavirus response from the Presidential administration and their divisive rhetoric. "We are living with the new normal, and it is frightening the extent to which it depends on a unity of purpose at the very time the president is politicizing this as a red state-blue state issue, threatening to pull the Republican National Convention from North Carolina unless the state promises him a full crowd," she said.
