Bare Cabinet

December 21, 2018
General Mattis has announced his formal resignation from the Trump Cabinet. He will leave his post as US Secretary of Defense in February 2019. Additionally, the stock market continues to plummet, asylum seekers will be detained in Mexico while they await their fate, and Trump backs off his softening stance on border wall funding. It's looking like we'll have a bare Cabinet for Christmas, and a shut down government to match. Chris Lu, Former Deputy Secretary of State, fills in for Bill Press. He is joined by guests Laura Rosenberger (Director of Alliance for Securing Democracy), Megan Uzzell (External Affairs Director for Democracy Forward), Seema Nanda (CEO of the Democratic National Committee).
