US shutdown, Pompeo's MidEast tour, DR Congo election results and Yellow Vests

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.
