What's behind the secret messages between WikiLeaks and Trump Jr.? We look at the week in politics. Senator Al Franken had to apologize for inappropriate behavior. Donald Trump Jr. had been messaging with Wikileaks during the campaign. The House passed a tax cut that will affect nearly everyone.
How long will the romance between Trump and Democrats last? Washington, DC is still agog at the deal President Trump struck with Democrats to fund the government and raise the debt ceiling. Republicans are baffled and pointing fingers. Meanwhile, Democrats are scratching their heads -- and bracing for the return of Hillary Clinton and her book tour. The Hillary versus Bernie fight is alive and well.
Terror attacks, bombings and the presidential campaign Today's violent incidents have led to an exchange between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton about how to prevent acts of terror. This morning on a phone call to Fox News' Fox and Friends, Trump addressed how as President he would use profiling to try to prevent acts of terror. "[Israel has] done an unbelievable job…. They see someone that's suspicious and they will profile. They will take that person in. They check. Do we have a choice?" At a news conference this morning Hillary Clinton called Trump a " recruiting sergeant " for terrorists. "We also know from the former head of our counterterrorism center, Matt Olsen, that the kinds of rhetoric and language that Mr. Trump has used is giving aid and comfort to our adversaries." Yoni Appelbaum, Politics Editor for the Atlantic, weighs the candidates' responses.
