Obama's final UN speech, foreign policy legacy

Hosted by  • 

In President Obama’s final address to the UN General Assembly, he cited progress over the last eight years, including the Iran nuclear deal and the thawing of relations with Cuba. But he also recognized that many challenges remain for the international community. With the conflict in Syria still unresolved and millions of people displaced, what will Obama’s foreign policy legacy be? Next, how withdrawing from NAFTA or the WTO would be surprisingly easy to do and could trigger a trade war. Then, LA and Vancouver are in a battle over which city has the best Chinese food west of the Mississippi. And finally, a new report by Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting explores the lives of ‘trimmigrants’ in California’s pot farms, and reveals the sexual abuse some say they’ve been subjected to.
