The News Roundup

A new push to replace the Affordable Care Act is afoot. Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort is feeling even more heat in the Russia investigation. Hurricane Maria continues to move northwest, and many Mexicans are devastated after an earthquake kills hundreds. President Trump made a speech to the U.N. General Assembly, and has also reportedly made a decision about the future of the Iran nuclear deal. Plus, Germany heads to the polls. Our guests for the domestic roundup are Norman Ornstein, resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute; E.J. Dionne Jr., senior fellow at the Brookings Institution; and Lisa Desjardins, correspondent for the PBS NewsHour. For the international hour, we're joined by Jon Sopel, North America editor for BBC; Carrie Kahn, NPR international correspondent based in Mexico City; Susan Glasser, chief international affairs columnist for Politico; and Demetri Sevastopulo, Washington bureau chief for the Financial Times.
