Donald Trump: A Look at the Man behind the Message In the first months of campaigning for the GOP presidential nomination, Donald Trump has relied on sweeping generalities. That and similar promises are now familiar -- and Trump's failure to back them up with substantive detail has not eroded his base of support. But others want to know more about those deals made by "The Donald," as he's known in New York and about the depth of his Republican values. We talk with supporters and skeptics about Trump's record and his White House qualifications.
Who's to blame for the opioid crisis? Some of the lawyers who took on Big Tobacco are now going after Big Pharma. It’s all about the deadly epidemic of opioid use. Are the drug companies to blame? What about the users? Later, on today’s Talking Point: making sense of Britain’s upset election.
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?

León Krauze guest hosts.
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
