    In this exclusive interview for Truthout, Noam Chomsky reflects on the destruction set in motion by this White House. Trump's constant distortion of the truth is part of a two-pronged strategy, he says, to distract attention from Paul Ryan and the reactionary fringe of the Republican establishment as they ram through a policy agenda that seeks to make the rich richer and the poor poorer.
