Trump Visits Mexico, Veterans for Kaepernick, Hip-Hop Brexit

The Takeaway

Coming up on today's show:

  • After an impromptu trip to Mexico, Donald Trump went to Phoenix Arizona for a policy speech on immigration. We learned that the wall is still in his plan, and that Trump is taking a very hard line on immigration. Ricardo Perez Gonzalez, a resident of Mexico, and Elise Foley, immigration and politics reporter with the Huffington Post, give us their takes.
  • Obamacare is still a major political issue after several health insurance companies have pulled out of the state exchanges, citing rising costs and fewer people singing up. Larry Levitt, senior vice president for the Kaiser Family Foundation, talks to us about the health of the Affordable Care Act.
  • Brazil just impeached suspended president Dilma Rousseff, and her vice president Michel Temer will be taking her place. Stephanie Nolen, Latin American Bureau Chief for The Globe and Mail, discusses what led to this moment and the future of Brazil
  • Author Laurence Scott joins us to discuss his new book, "The Four-Dimensional Human: Ways of Being in the Digital World." Scott says having a sense of imagination is important to understanding the fourth dimension, and confirms that we still know how to be human.
  •  When San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat down during the national anthem before a football game last week, the outcry was instant. An unlikely group is supporting him - veterans. Asha Castleberry was a captain in the U.S. Army, and says Kaepernick's protest spoke to her as a veteran of color.
  • Britain's newly-elected Prime Minister is met with cabinet members on Wednesday to discuss the path to Brexit, and we met with hip-hop artist and Remain campaigner Akala. Akala says this political moment is about more than the next election, it's about a sense of loss that causes some groups to target others.
