It was a busy weekend for the president. President Trump tweeted he was not briefed about Russia's alleged bounty on American troops in Afghanistan, that Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden is "definitely a low IQ person" and that counter-protesters who yelled "white power" at a Florida rally are "great people."

Host Robin Young talks to White House correspondent Maggie Haberman about how all this will play out politically for the president — at a time when coronavirus cases are on the rise and national anger about systemic racism is fueling protests and demands for change.

This segment aired on June 29, 2020.
