Trump Abandons Puerto Rico After Hurricane Devastation

The US and Donald Trump seem to have abandoned Puerto Rico as it faces a massive humanitarian catastrophe after Hurricane Maria. On today’s show our correspondent Rosa Clemente will explain what has happened on the island and how the US government’s poor response is endangering millions of Americans. Then, Marcy Wheeler joins us for a nuanced look at the latest in Robert Mueller’s investigation of the Trump administration. Finally, Steven Hill, author of Raw Deal: How the ‘Uber Economy’ and Runaway Capitalism Are Screwing American Workers, will explain what Uber’s recent problems in London mean for the future of ride sharing and the gig economy.
