Rising Up With Sonali

Trump Alludes to Force in Responding to Syria Chemical Attack

Syria’s chemical attack killing over a hundred civilians could be seen by Donald Trump as an impetus for US military action. We’ll turn to Middle East expert Stephen Zunes for what the attack means. And, as Democrats vote to filibuster the confirmation vote on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, Republicans prepare to use the so-called “nuclear option.” My guest, The Nation magazine’s Ari Berman will explain. And, Ecuadoreans choose former Vice President Lenin Moreno over a conservative neo-liberalist for President. Economist William Black has been following the story and will join us.
