President Trump approaches the end of his first 100 days in office with no shortage of items on his agenda: Congress is on the verge of another possible shutdown, and by the end of next week, both parties must come together to pass spending legislation if they want to avoid a government shut-down.
Abroad, tensions are still high between the US and North Korea, while the terror attack Thursday in Paris served as a global reminder for vigilance against international terror threats.
Sunday on “Face the Nation” we’ll talk to Florida Senator Marco Rubio, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations and Intelligence Committees. We’ll ask the Senator how the U.S. should handle international issues like ISIS and North Korea, and we’ll discuss domestic politics, including the upcoming budget deadline.
We’ll also talk to Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly about the attack in Paris and the U.S. strategy to protect the homeland. On the campaign trail, candidate Donald Trump called for profiling Muslims to detect possible terrorist threats. Will President Trump advocate for the same policy now?
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, fresh off his cross-country unity tour with DNC Chair Tom Perez, will give us some perspective from the Democratic side of the aisle. A recent Harvard-Harris survey named Sanders the most popular politician in America. What did the unity tour teach him the country and what’s in store for the future of the party?
Former Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Governor John Kasich, will also appear on Sunday’s broadcast. Kasich will discuss his new book, “Two Paths: America Divided or United,” and assess his former primary rival Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office.
And we’ll wrap up the week with our political panel. Sunday we’ll be joined by the Wall Street Journal’s White House Correspondent Carol Lee, the National Review’s Executive Editor Reihan Salam, Editor-in-Chief of The Atlantic Jeffrey Goldberg and Chief National Correspondent of the New York Times Magazine Mark Leibovich.
