Sunday: Tillerson, McCain and Burns

Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns sits down with CBS' "Face the Nation" for an interview that airs April 10, 2016.

As Florida begins its long road to recovery in the wake of the devastation from Hurricane Irma, President Donald Trump faces another big test on the world stage.   Heading into the annual United Nations General Assembly gathering in New York, North Korea remains a top concern for the Trump administration. Sunday on "Face the Nation," we'll talk to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson about the latest developments on North Korea's efforts to build a nuclear program.  What diplomatic efforts will the US take to get North Korea to back down?

Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona), the Chairman of the Armed Services Committee also joins to talk about North Korea, the US role in the world and also Russia's planned war gates this weekend, which are worrisome to NATO officials.   McCain will also weigh in on the Senate's work on the Defense Authorization Bill, a crucial vehicle for funding the military.

We'll also have a special interview with filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick on their new documentary series "The Vietnam War." The ten-part series tells the story of one of the most controversial wars in American history through interviews of nearly 80 witnesses from different aspects of the war and premieres Sunday night on PBS. 

On the domestic front, the president hosted Senate Minority Leader Schumer and House Minority Leader Pelosi to a dinner of Chinese food and chocolate pie for desert at the White House Wednesday night, hoping to continue working on bipartisan agreements on issues like the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration policy which protects minors who entered the country illegally from deportation and Tax Reform. Though the accounts of what both parties agreed on after their dinner differ, the president is showing a willingness to reach across the aisle, leaving some in his own party frustrated.

Finally will have a roundup of this week's news from our political panel.  This week we're joined by USA Today's Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page, The Atlantic's Editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg, Slate Magazine's Chief Political correspondent and CBS News Political Analyst Jamelle Bouie and National Review Senior Editor and Bloomberg View columnist Ramesh Ponnuru.
