Friday News Roundup

This week was yet another busy one for news. Paris deals, a spate of worrying hate crimes seen across the country and the ongoing mystery that surrounds "covfefe". Also, Afghanistan's president says cowards were behind this week's bombing in Kabul and the world reacts as President Trump makes his decision on the Paris climate accord. Two panels of journalists join Joshua Johnson for analysis of the week's top news stories. Covering domestic news is Ed O'Keefe, congressional correspondent for The Washington Post, Nia-Malika Henderson, senior political reporter at CNN and Reid Wilson, national correspondent for The Hill. Discussing international news is Susan Glasser, chief international affairs columnist for Politico, Eli Lake, columnist for Bloomberg View, Nancy Youssef, national security correspondent at BuzzFeed and Anthony Kuhn, international correspondent for NPR.
