Stephen Henderson and GOP PR Pro John Truscott Hash Out Week’s News

President Donald Trump in Afghanistan this week.

Every week, Detroit Today host Stephen Henderson invites someone who disagrees with him politically on the show to have a robust — but civil — conversation about the week’s news.

This week, Henderson speaks with John Truscott, a principal at the Truscott Rossman political PR firm based in Lansing.

They talk about President Donald Trump’s rally this week in Arizona, more infighting among top Republican leaders in Washington D.C., and Steve Bannon’s ouster from the White House.


Truscott questions Trump’s decision to hold a campaign rally this early and outside of the normal political cycle.

I just don’t think it’s appropriate and I don’t think it’s helpful in accomplishing an agenda,” he says.
