252

Trump’s state visit to Britain triggers a wave of protests in London, including from Mayor Sadiq Khan, meanwhile Trump’s trade wars escalate with both China and Mexico as globalization and NAFTA take a direct hit from Washington’s neomercantilist approach to international relations, including ‘CHinese blacklists. The West’s war on China isn’t confined to trade either, as the US revokes China’s TV press credentials in the US, while extolling the virtues of a ‘free press.’ Also Swedish wunderkind Greta Thunberg miscalculates her carbon footprint before announcing she’s taking ‘a year at sea’ off school to ‘fight for the climate’. All this and more.

Co-hosts Mike Robinson and Patrick Henningsen with the early week news round-up.
