Animal Rights on the Way to the Slaughterhouse Arizona and Florida now ban the raising of pregnant pigs in confining cages. Oregon's Democratic Congressman Peter DeFazio has introduced a federal law to promote more humane treatment of all farm animals. Now, celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck says his restaurants and frozen foods will only use meat from animals that have been humanely treated. From Wolfgang Puck to Burger King , animal rights are going mainstream. Will meats and poultry be different if there's less cruelty on the way to the slaughterhouse?
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
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.
