Long-time Middle East expert and author Juan Cole joins us for an in-depth conversation about how Donald Trump is using the attacks in Europe, including the latest London Bridge incident, to further his own agenda in the US and pick a fight with London Mayor Sadiq Khan. We’ll also speak with Cole about why Trump and the Saudis have suddenly singled out Qatar as the main funder of global terrorism and how the UK elections could play out. Then, a well-timed biography of Richard Nixon has just been published. We’ll speak with author John A. Farrell about the disgraced former president and what the similarities and differences are between Nixon and our current president.
