Iran Nuclear Deal? President Trump Says: No Deal, No More.

Hosted by , ,  • 
President Trump has withdrawn the United States from the Iran nuclear deal. He says we can make a better one, but will other world powers go along with his plan to put pressure on Iran? A time, date and location has been announced for the president's meeting with Kim Jong-Un, and three Americans have returned home from detention there. Should we be optimistic that the president will strike a good deal with Kim?

The president's controversial nominee to lead the CIA faces tough questions in her confirmation hearing. And there are a lot more questions than answers about Michael Cohen's service as an "essential consultant" to AT&T and Novartis. Four states held primary elections this week and many women candidates fared well. The panel talks with a political scientist about the so-called "pink wave" and why it might be more of a ripple.

David Frumsenior editor at The Atlantic and author of Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic and Kelly Dittmar, project director of Gender Watch 2018 and an assistant professor and scholar at Rutgers' Center for American Women and Politics are our special guests.
