According to New Yorker reporter Adam Davidson, we are in the end stages of the Trump presidency. He explains why he feels this way in his new essay titled, “Michael Cohen and the End Stage of the Trump Presidency.”
He started out by making parallels to the Iraq war and the 2008 financial crisis.
Davidson continues and states that he now feels “a familiar clarity about what will unfold next in the Trump Presidency.”

He goes to write, “Sure, many people have a vague sense of Trump’s shadiness, but once the full details are better known and digested, a fundamentally different narrative about Trump will become commonplace. Remember: we knew a lot about problems in Iraq in May, 2003. Americans saw TV footage of looting and heard reports of U.S. forces struggling to gain control of the entire country. We had plenty of reporting, throughout 2007, about various minor financial problems. Somehow, though, these specific details failed to impress upon most Americans the over-all picture. It took a long time for the nation to accept that these were not minor aberrations but, rather, signs of fundamental crisis.”
Davidson insists that the difference now is how prosecutors are looking at the core of Trump’s corrupt business dealings.
He writes, “Cohen was the key intermediary between the Trump family and its partners around the world; he was chief consigliere and dealmaker throughout its period of expansion into global partnerships with sketchy oligarchs. He wasn’t a slick politico who showed up for a few months. He knows everything, he recorded much of it, and now prosecutors will know it, too.”
He concluded, “But it seems likely that, when we look back on this week, we will see it as a turning point. We are now in the end stages of the Trump Presidency.”
