Trump & the auto industry The auto industry is a $2.3 trillion global business, and close to 3.5% of the total U.S. economy . What will it look like in the coming Trump Era? Tod Mesirow joins Steve Chiotakis to look into it.
A Massive Airbag Recall... Is Your Car at Risk? A recall of millions of automobiles in the United States could get much bigger. So far 30 million cars and trucks have already been identified as having faulty, potentially deadly airbags.

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.

We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
