Trump Threatens to “Totally Destroy North Korea” at UN

Donald Trump threatens to “totally destroy North Korea” in his speech to the United Nations General Assembly. On today’s show we’ll turn to Phyllis Bennis about whether these are empty threats and how Trump’s bombast is interpreted by the rest of the world. Then, Dr. Carol Paris joins us for a detailed analysis of the GOP’s newest attempt sponsored by Senators Graham and Cassidy to repeal the Affordable Care Act, coming just days after Bernie Sanders’s push for Medicare-for-All. Finally, we’ll hear part 1 of a 2 part interview with Alexander Klimburg, about his new book called The Darkening Web: The War for Cyberspace. The book explores the increasingly tense battle lines drawn around the Internet as governments vie for control over our digital world. Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
