China issued the latest shot in a looming trade war this week, announcing it would increase tariffs on pork products. That decision could have an impact on farmers in eastern North Carolina counties. In an unrelated swine development, a series of nuisance lawsuits were back in federal court.

Becki Gray, of the John Locke Foundation, and Rob Schofield, with NC Policy Watch, discuss pork on this week's political review, and also explain why they're not thrilled about Charlotte's bid to host the 2020 Republican National Convention.
