Weekly Roundup: Thursday, March 8

President Trump announced tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, despite strong objections from fellow Republicans. Economic adviser Gary Cohn became the latest Trump administration official to resign, adding to a record breaking rate of turnover in this White House. Stormy Daniels, the porn star who allegedly had an affair with Trump years ago, has filed suit against him. And in California, a high level of excitement among Democrats has led to very crowded primaries that could actually pose problems for the party. This episode: host/White House correspondent Tamara Keith, political reporter Danielle Kurtzleben, White House correspondent Scott Horsley, congressional correspondent Scott Detrow, and editor correspondent Ron Elving.
