Rising Up With Sonali

How Trump Could Derail Cuba Advances

Donald TruTrump’s new Executive Order on US-Cuba relations aims to undo all of President Obama’s advances on a detente with the island nation. On today’s show we’ll speak with Netfa Freeman of the Institute of Policy Studies to find out what exactly it means. And, with the resignation of Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, author Steven Hill will join us to explain the implications for the US economy, Silicon Valley, and more. Finally as Trump attempts to figure out NAFTA which he promised to “terminate” during his campaign, my guest Tobita Chow suggests re-writing the free trade agreement to actually favor people and the planet rather than corporations.
