FROM Will Martin
The Federal Shutdown and Southern California Early this afternoon, Pacific Time, President Obama outlined the furloughs and other actions he'll implement if the House and the Senate can't agree to fund the government before the money runs out at midnight tonight. Southern California is a major population center that depends on the nation's capital in many ways. How will it be affected if the government shuts down?
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.
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?
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? León Krauze guest hosts.
