Cult expert Steven Hassan said President Donald Trump's penchant for claiming "authority" and expert knowledge on the coronavirus is a move that could be taken right out of the "cult leader playbook."

Hassan illustrated how people are especially vulnerable to influence during an event like a pandemic, and Trump's unyielding behavior could be dangerous in a time where expert opinions are paramount.

From Trump's claims of absolute authority to his decision to cut funding to the World Health Organization, Hassan said he thinks it will only prolong problems as the US continues to grapple with the coronavirus.
