Can America's Left start its own Tea Party? Across the country, protesters are calling on Democrats to obstruct the Trump Administration wherever they can. In the US Senate, Elizabeth Warren and others have got the message, and they’re defying Republicans by attacking Trump’s nominee for Attorney General. But how long can the political energy be sustained — especially when Republicans complain that they’re in danger at town halls when demonstrators turn on them. Is a so-called "resistance" movement at risk of alienating the supporters it needs most to accomplish political change?
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?
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.
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.
