Can Donald Trump turn his fortunes around?

It's been a rocky week for the Trump administration. It began with the president's son in law, Jared Kushner, being interviewed as part of congressional enquiries into Russia and it ended with the defeat of proposed healthcare reforms. President Trump now has a new chief of staff; former general John Kelly has replaced Reince Priebus. Will this move turn the administration's fortunes around? Jonah Goldberg is a senior editor at the conservative magazine the National Review and Nancy Soderberg is a former deputy National Security Advisor to Barack Obama.

Also on the programme Sri Lanka has leased the southern port of Hambantota to China. A great deal of the World's Trade passes through there. Is this a good deal? And we look at the life and work of John G Morris; the photo editor who published some of the most iconic images of war in the twentieth century, including Robert Capa's D-Day pictures, and Nick Ut's iconic photograph of a young Vietnamese girl on fire following a napalm attack. He has died at the age of 100.
