POLITICO Dispatch

A 'firehose of news' and a hospitalized president

Episode Notes

President Trump is in the hospital with coronavirus. We know that much. But there are lots of unknowns about his condition, and his medical team isn't filling in the gaps. POLITICO's Ryan Lizza explains how the hospitalization caps off a tumultuous 10 days for team Trump — and breaks down what it all means for the campaign with less than a month before Election Day. Plus, Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey will retire in 2022. And New York is reinstating some shutdowns.
