United States: Donald Trump and the Russian connection

US President Donald Trump says he was within his rights to disclose information to Moscow, this amid a row over him sharing classified intelligence with Russian officials. It comes after US media reported that top secret information was revealed during a meeting with Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at the Oval Office last week. It's the latest media storm to engulf Trump, who is also facing criticism for firing the FBI director James Comey. FRANCE 24’s James André tells us more.

We also head to Tangier Island off the coast of Virginia, which is slowly disappearing due to climate change. The islanders, though, are staunch supporters of President Trump who has in the past called climate change a hoax.

And we see how in Argentina, the land of Maradona and Messi, things are changing as the trend of mixed football grows.
