Wrestling Fights for a Spot in 2020 Olympics The US, Iran and Russia have major differences, but they agree on one thing. Wrestling — a sport that dates back to ancient Greek tournaments that started it all — should be restored to the Olympic Games. In February, the International Olympic Committee stunned traditionalists and dropped wrestling from the summer games of 2020. Now it's one of eight sports vying for a single opening that still remains. Bryce Miller, sports columnist for the Des Moines Register, is creator of the series, " Wrestling's Olympic Fight ."
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border?
