FROM Matt Hardigree
Cars, Cars and More Cars The Detroit Auto Show used to be all about size, speed, style and America's domination of the world market. This year even China's in on the action, marketing strategies you might call unorthodox, while more familiar players push plug-in hybrids, clean diesel and cars that run on industrial waste. Toyota is competing with GM to go green, but has to admit that the auto industry will always be bad for the environment. What's next for American drivers? Can the world sustain the expanding automobile economy?
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.
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?
