Episode 121: Missing economic context

The trade war escalated to new levels as Chinese President Xi JinPing and President Trump raised tariffs again and shocked global markets. Interestingly, and disappointingly, most Sunday political shows failed to aptly explain the latest economic turmoil.

This week on Polilogue we examine the missing context and compare the interviews of Steve Mnuchin on Fox News Sunday and Larry Kudlow on State of the Union. We also look at Republicans eying a primary challenge against Trump for 2020.
