US shutdown, Pompeo's MidEast tour, DR Congo election results and Yellow Vests
Date created :
As the US nears its historically longest government shutdown, 800,000 federal workers are missing out on their first pay day. Also this week, the US president gave his first nationally-televised speech from the Oval Office and then travelled to the Mexican border to plead his case for a border wall. Our panel also discusses the locally-contested DR Congo election results, plus populist support from abroad for France's Yellow Vest movement.
