Another Minority under Attack The man who gunned down six worshipers at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee, Wisconsin was killed by police. The civil rights group Southern Poverty Law Center describes him as "a frustrated neo-Nazi who had been the leader of a racist white-power band." Meantime, the search is on for a " person of interest " who may have videotaped the incident. Since September 11, Sikhs have been the targets of discrimination in the United States, partly, they believe, because they're mistaken for Muslims.
Trump's new look at civil rights and global warming President Trump is reportedly ready to pull the US out of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. We look at the possible consequences. On the second half of the program, we hear about cuts in Obama-Era civil rights programs called for by the Trump Administration's first budget plan.
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?
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?
