John Harwood’s Career at CNN
In January 2020, John Harwood left CNBC to join CNN. He was known for attacking President Donald Trump and the Republican Party in 2019, claiming it was fundamentally flawed. Harwood has even conducted political analysis since Joe Biden became president. During his primetime address on Sept. 1, Biden labeled MAGA Republicans a danger to America’s democratic ideals. Harwood agreed, stating:
“It is indisputably true that Biden believes Trump and hardline Republicans pose a threat to American democracy.”
On his last appearance on CNN on September 2, he stated that being a journalist is difficult. He said:
“We have learned that there are two political parties with opposing views, and we do not take sides in real differences of opinion between them.” But that’s not what we’re talking about. These are real differences. The Republican Party is currently run by a deceitful demagogue.”
