Fifty Years after the Civil Rights Era: Racism on Campus The election of America's first black President led to predictions that the US was on its way to becoming "post-racial," led by the "millennial generation." But at colleges and universities, in blue states as well as red, complaints about racially charged incidents have increased by 55% since 2009. Limits on affirmative action have cut the number of students of color on campus, and those that make it say being admitted is not the same as being accepted. Does the very idea of becoming "post racial" diminish pride in one's ethnic and racial background?
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.
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.
