The News Roundup

Hurricane Irma plowed through the Caribbean, the DOJ announced that DACA would end next year and President Trump makes a deal with Democratic Congressional leaders to pass hurricane relief funding. Also, North Korea seemed to up the ante this week with a supposed hydrogen bomb test that prompted an urgent response from the U.N. as well as conflicting messages from President Trump. Covering domestic news is Alexis Simendinger, White House correspondent for RealClearPolitics, Byron Tau, congressional reporter for The Wall Street Journal and Priscilla Alvarez, assistant editor for The Atlantic. Discussing international news is Courtney Kube, national security and military reporter for NBC News, Julia Ioffe, staff writer for The Atlantic and Ambassador Derek Mitchell, senior adviser to the Asia Program at the U.S. Institute of Peace, who also served as U.S. ambassador to the Republic of the Union of Myanmar from 2012 to 2016.
