KENDZIOR: "This is a classic authoritarian move. Russia and other, you know, authoritarian regimes have embraced these tactics all the time and they also have a history in the U.S. While I understand this view of authoritarianism, the other thing to know is Trump is not concerned with winning the election. He is trying to steal the election. They try to seem more engaged and more popular. They don’t let their base die of Coronavirus for example so those are all things to take into account as we move forward."
