Rising Up With Sonali

Trump Escalates War and Rhetoric From Afghanistan to North Korea

Donald Trump’s escalating actions and rhetoric from Afghanistan to North Korea are a dangerous moment for global peace. Days after the US dropped a 22,000-lb so-called “Mother of All Bombs” on Afghanistan we’ll turn to Codepink co-founder Medea Benjamin for a discussion. And, the airline industry’s practices are under intense scrutiny in the wake of the viral video of a bleeding United Airlines passenger David Dao being dragged through the aisle of a plane. We’ll turn to Consumer Watchdog President Jamie Court for more. Finally, education policy expert and author Diane Ravitch joins us for a look at how Americans are confronting their members of Congress during recess to denounce Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s privatization agenda.
