This weekend, President Trump became our first ever Commander-in-Chief to address a defined hate group, continued a war of words with members of his own party, and undid key former President Obama’s health care legislation.  We’ll have analysis on all of these stories from Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Ellis Henican, who writes the column “Trump’s America” in Metro papers. Hate crimes, they’re on the rise here in New York City and across the country.  We’re taking a close look at this disturbing trend and what’s being done to stop it.  Christopher Mathias, the national reporter for the Huffington Post, will join us with the report. Actress and advocate Judith Light is on a mission to save lives.  She’ll be here with a warning we all need to heed.
