King Salman of Saudi Arabia on first visit to U.S.

King Salman of Saudi Arabia is meeting with President Obama today. The King took the throne in January. This will be his first U.S. visit. It’s expected the two leaders will discuss the Iran nuclear deal, due for a vote by Congress in the coming weeks. Saudi Arabia considers Iran to be a major regional rival. Cherif Bassiouni, professor emeritus of law at DePaul University, joins us to discuss the implications of the visit and the state of US-Saudi relations. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)
