What about Football in the City of Industry? Governor Brown and the legislature have accelerated the environmental process for Farmers' Field in downtown LA. Only two out of 15 city council members have any reservations at all. But the NFL still may like another site better -- in the City of Industry, on 600 empty acres, where the 57 and 60 freeways meet. Billionaire Ed Roski and Majestic Realty's Los Angeles Stadium Project could get the nod over Philip Anshutz and AEG.
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
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.
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.
