The West Block: April 9, 2023 | What Trump’s charges mean for U.S. politics and Canada’s role in the future of space travel

Former U.S. president Donald Trump is facing 34 felony charges related to hush-money payments allegedly made during his 2016 election and allegations of falsifying business records. Regardless of how the case plays out, America is in uncharted territory. "The West Block" host Mercedes Stephenson speaks with Rick Wilson, co-founder of The Lincoln Project, and Sean Spicer, former White House press secretary under Trump, about what this means for the future of U.S. politics and whether the Republican Party will have to shift gears ahead of the 2024 election. Plus, Stephenson talks with Jeremy Hansen, the Canadian astronaut serving on NASA’s lunar mission Artemis II, about the future of deep space exploration.
