I once again joined BBC‘s Anthony Zurcher along with Susan Glasser of POLITICO and Charlie Spiering from Breitbart News to decipher President Trump’s tweets for our friends across the pond.
Link here via BBC World Service, or listen to the full segment below.
Anthony Zurcher, BBC North America reporter and his guests in Washington DC discuss the President Trump’s reactions to the Florida school shooting and calls for gun control, as well as the latest developments in the investigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 US election.
Josh, Liam, and Paul react to the tumultuous past 24 hours of on-again-off-again steel and aluminum tariff announcements from the Administration. We break down the context and history of the proposed tariffs and the President’s tweeted claims that trade wars are “easy to win.”
From the passage of the 2018 budget deal to the President’s FY19 budget proposal announcement, there has been a lot of talk in Washington about federal money and where it should go. Josh and Liam sit down with two lobbyists who have significant experience in this complicated area of government, Ed Krenik and John Lee, to discuss the political context for these events, how they differ, and what they mean for policy going forward.
