ABC’s Jonathan Karl Issues Serious Warning Covering Donald Trump In 2024

Jonathan Karl of ABC News warned that if Donald Trump ultimately decides to run for president again in 2024, it could be “the greatest challenge campaign reporters have ever faced.”

Karl posed a few questions about coverage issues for Trump’s possible third presidential campaign in a lengthy interview with Deadline published Friday.

For example: “How do you cover up a candidate who is essentially anti-democratic?”

And: “How do you cover up a candidate who … also opposes a very democratic system that makes all this possible?”

Carl, author of Betrayal: The Last Act of The Trump Show, said reporting on Trump would be “extremely difficult” because “now, more than ever,” he is “just saying things that are not true, that designed to misinform, which are meant to undermine trust and confidence in our electoral system. “

Trump has made more than 30,000 false or misleading statements during his presidency, according to The Washington Post.

President Joe Biden’s baseless one-term conspiracy theories about his defeat in the 2020 election sparked a deadly riot in the Capitol on January 6.

And since then, he has repeated the same lie many times.

Karl acknowledged that how to handle Trump’s debates, speeches and interviews are “really hard questions” as he “has demonstrated his role as a candidate trying to destroy the very system that makes this election possible.”

“This is a very difficult, dangerous situation, and I do not know how it will develop, to be honest,” he added.
