In these segments of the gBB, we tackle some really tough but important topics on the minds of many Americans today. Specifically, China, North Korea, and Russia seem to be on President Trump’s mind right now, and, as such, these countries are also important countries and topic areas for the U.S. Congress and the United States (and the rest of the world).
Doug gives us his take on the brewing trade conflict or war with China, followed by his insights on the Trump - Kim Jong Un (North Korea’s leader) meeting in Singapore. We wrap the segment with Doug’s take on Robert Mueller’s Russia probe into President Trump’s connection, or his associates’ connections, to Russia at about the one year anniversary of Mueller’s assignment.
To hear Doug's full take on China, North Korea, and Russia, (as of early June 2018) please click on the embedded SoundCloud PodCasts shared immediately below.
