The News Roundup

The biggest news stories this week included two executive orders from President Trump that take a bite out of the Affordable Care Act. Congress is moving forward on spending $36.5 billion on disaster relief following severe hurricanes and wildfires. And the clock is ticking on President Trump's decision on the Iran nuclear deal. Joining us to discuss national news are Reid Wilson, national correspondent for The Hill; Abby Phillip, national political reporter for The Washington Post; and David Rennie, Washington bureau chief for The Economist. And for the international hour we have James Kitfield, senior fellow at the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress; Jennifer Williams, deputy foreign editor for Vox; and Simon Marks, president and chief correspondent of Feature Story News.
