Brett Kavanaugh, trade war with China, NATO and Russia

7/12/2018


This week on The Square Circle, we'll discuss these issues:

0:44 - Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals has won President Trump's single red rose for nomination to the Supreme Court, and now he faces what's likely to be a protracted battle for his confirmation in the Senate. How would a potential Justice Kavanaugh shape the Court?

7:17 - The U.S. trade war with China is now in full swing. Is it more a matter of politics or policy for the Trump White House?

13:13 - President Trump ruffled some feathers at the NATO summit in Brussels, reiterating his demand that NATO members spend more on defense and accusing Germany of being controlled by Russia. This all comes before a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Conservative commentator Valerie Greenfeld, Zaid Jilani of The Intercept, and Rachel Tripp of Young Voices discuss these issues and more.
