FROM Jacqueline Charles
'Baby Doc' Duvalier Taken into Custody in Haiti On Sunday, Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier stunned Haiti by returning from 25 years of luxurious exile in France. Today, police took him from his hotel in Port-au-Prince and government officials say he'll be questioned about past charges of stealing from the treasury. Jacqueline Charles is there for the Miami Herald .
The First Anniversary of the Haiti Earthquake One year ago today Haiti lost some 300,000 people to an earthquake that registered 7.0. Ten million survivors declared today a national holiday. But despite billions in promised international aid and plans to "build it back better," so much rubble has yet to be cleared that recovery hasn't even begun. Jacqueline Charles is in Port-au-Prince for the Miami Herald .
Haiti, Still Reeling, Prepares for Elections Even if the Island nation of Haiti had not suffered a devastating earthquake, electing a new president was not going to be easy. Ready or not, the election will be held on Sunday. Jacqueline Charles is Caribbean correspondent and Haiti Bureau Chief for the Miami Herald .
Human Rights in the era of Donald Trump President Trump’s UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, said today the US might pull out of the United Nations’ Human Rights Council. Serious violators of human rights are members of the Council itself–and a US resignation could make things worse. Later on today’s show, now that he’s into his second term, comedian turned US Senator Al Franken is telling jokes again.
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? León Krauze guest hosts.
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.
