TRUMP AGENDA - Broken Promises and Backstabbing

"What does Trump's transgender ban mean for active-duty military members?" PBS NewsHour 7/26/2017


SUMMARY:  Word of a significant policy reversal came not from the Pentagon, but from President Trump's Twitter feed, where he announced that transgender people would be banned from the U.S. military.  Socially conservative groups welcomed the decision, but it drew quick condemnation from Democrats and some leading Republicans.  Judy Woodruff learns more from William Brangham.

"Trump signals he might pull out of the Iran nuclear deal.  What's at stake?" PBS NewsHour 7/26/2017


SUMMARY:  Two years since the Iran nuclear agreement was signed, President Trump may be on the way to pulling the U.S. out of the deal.  The President indicated in an interview he's willing to overrule the State Department and not certify Iran's compliance.  John Yang talks to Robert Malley, a former White House negotiator for the Iran nuclear talks, and Mark Dubowitz of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
