Understanding France’s ‘Yellow Vest’ Protests

The Yellow Vests protests in France have rocked the nation and forced President Emmanuel Macron to back down from a fuel tax hike. On today’s show we’ll examine whether the framing of the protests as “People Vs. the Climate,” is accurate or not with author and journalist Steven Hill. Then, as a potential government shutdown looms over President Trump’s demand for a border wall, Lindsay Koshgarian will join us to discuss all the constructive ways in which the $5 billion wall funding request could instead be spent.
