Democracy Now speaks to world-renowned political dissident, linguist and author Noam Chomsky.

Chomsky responds to President Trump’s cuts to US support for the World Health Organization and the surge in deaths in the US to another record high, and discusses conditions in Gaza, the rise of authoritarianism around the world, and the progressive response.

“This is typical behavior of autocrats and dictators. When you make colossal errors which are killing thousands of people, find somebody else to blame,” say Chomsky. “In the United States, it’s unfortunately the case, for well over a century, century and a half, that it’s always easy to blame the ‘yellow peril’.”
