Topics of discussion are defined herein:
- President Trump met with President Xi Jinping at the G20 Meeting in Japan and they have agreed to restart trade negotiations. Have both presidents felt the pain? Have they each felt the pain?
- House Democrats voted this week on a clean Senate-passed bill to address the border crisis, marking a blow to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and liberal lawmakers who demanded additional protections for migrant children. Is Pelosi being undermined by Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY)?
- The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 the court cannot rule on partisan gerrymandering cases since the issue is outside the purview of the federal courts thereby revealing the ideological divide among the Justices. Can gerrymandered districts be reconciled to reflect changed demographics? How so?
- Former Vice President Joe Biden took a shellacking from Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) when he attempted to defend his demeanor as a civil rights advocate throughout his life. Harris suggested his position on school busing and comments about his working with segregationist senators was racist in conduct and tone deaf to the pain it exacted on people of color.
- Several Democrats responded to questions in English and in Spanish seemed to evoke a sense of pandering to the Latino community by some voters. Have the candidates well-versed in Spanish been helped by their bi-lingual capacity or with a sour taste overcome those who only speak English?
- Democrats are leery of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) suggestion to cancel $1.6 trillion in student debt. Will this “Socialist” concept gain support among the voter in 2020 or will the concept need another term or two to be adopted?
- Senate Democrats are reluctant to consider legislation on reparations for slavery which has resurfaced in anticipation of the 2020 presidential campaign. What is the likelihood of legislation in response to this outcry gaining Congressional and Senate support?
- President Trump and Kim Jong Un met at the militarized zone diving the two Koreas for a handshake on Sunday. What is the logical intention of this effort?
