Tensions rise this week as Iran seizes a British oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz putting the Trump Administration in the difficult position of having to respond diplomatically to increased hostile activity. The thought of another war is unpopular among Americans, the Trump Administration places Senator Rand Paul in a position to negotiate with the hostile actor, increasing the odds for a diplomatic resolution to these aggressions. 

Trump became embroiled once again with accusations of racism following a Tweet this week inviting Congresswomen to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came”. Immediately Democrats seized the moment to regain a degree of political unity while facing their own internal schisms within the party. 

Popularly known s “The Squad” this week the four freshmen Congresswomen sat down in an interview with Gayle King to discuss the fallout from Trump’s Tweet as well as their battle for respect within their party and the ongoing relationship with Speaker Nancy Pelosi. A busy week for news makes for excellent discussion, listen to the full show for the full rundown on these topics and a lot more!
