Was Washington Redskins Namesake a Native American Imposter? For 20 years, Native Americans and others have been trying to get the NFL's Washington Redskins to change the team's name. But the owner, Dan Snyder, says it's meant to honor the team's first coach, Lone Star Dietz, who claimed to belong to the Sioux Nation. President Obama has joined the debate over the name saying, if he were the owner and it offended "a sizeable group of people, he'd change it…even if it had a storied history." Well, it does have a storied history all right, but the story itself might not be true. Richard Lieby has covered it for the Washington Post , since it first became controversial.
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.
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.
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.
