President Donald Trump has returned from his five-country tour of Asia. He characterized the trip as a “tremendous success,” but political analysts say his exuberance does not align with the political accomplishments. 

After efforts to strike favorable relationships and trade deals abroad, the next political hurdle is the Republican’s tax plan. The U.S. House passed their version of that bill, but the Senate is still struggling to reshape and pass their own version. Meanwhile North Carolina Senators Richard Burr and Thom Tillis say they will not support President Trump’s pick for the head of the Environmental Protection Agency’s chemical safety office.

Host Frank Stasio speaks with the Political Junkie Ken Rudin for his take on the week in politics.
