Trump tackles Obama's legacy on global warming The EPA and other agencies can now ignore rising seas, ocean acidification, heat waves and drought — which most scientists attribute to climate change. President Trump doesn't accept it, and he's revoking Obama Administration limits on the oil and coal industries in the interests of "energy independence." Several states plan to fight him every step of the way, and economics now favor energy from natural gas, the sun and the wind. We hear what's next for the Clean Power Plan , the Paris Agreements and the strengths and limits of presidential power.
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?
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.

With time running out, guest host León Krauze looks at what the international community can do to pull the country from the edge of collapse.
