The News Roundup

In this edition of the News Roundup we'll ask what President Trump said – or didn't say – to the widow of a veteran killed in Niger. Plus the president's travel ban hits another road block. Also, ISIS is driven out of its de facto capital in Syria, Iraq takes back territory lost to the Kurds and Malta is in turmoil after a car bomb killed a reporter who helped expose corruption. Two panels of journalists join Joshua Johnson for analysis of the week's top news stories. Discussing domestic news is conservative commentator Charlie Sykes, Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post and Greg Ip of the Wall Street Journal. Discussing international news is Ann Applebaum of the Washington Post, Tom Bowman of NPR and Rosiland Jordan of Al Jazeera English.
