Political Outsiders: How Long Will They Last? Republican Donald Trump says, “The beauty of me is that I am very rich.” Democratic-Socialist Bernie Sanders rails against the power of the “billionaire class.” They’re about as different as it’s possible for candidates to be… but they’re similar in one very important way: each is “separating himself from the political and economic system that many everyday Americans view as rigged against them.” That’s according to Philip Rucker, national political correspondent for the Washington Post.
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?
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
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.
