Tonight in Philadelphia: It's Up to Hillary Clinton To what started out as a divided convention, President Obama summed up the week's most important message in three words, "Don't boo. Vote." He acknowledged the troubles of some Americans, but said Hillary Clinton is uniquely qualified to continue the progress made during his eight years. He invoked Ronald Reagan's "shining city on a hill" in contrast to Donald Trump's dark vision of "a divided crime scene." We hear how Joe Biden, Tim Kaine -- even Michael Bloomberg — helped set the stage for tonight's acceptance by the first woman nominee for the White House. Photo courtesy of the Clinton campaign
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
Venezuela spirals into economic and political chaos Venezuela, a country whose potential for prosperity is unmatched, finds itself on the verge of civil war. What sustains the repressive government? 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.
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?
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
