Immigration, trade, and Black Lives Matter: three hot-button themes today in Cleveland at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday. Meanwhile, The World's Jason Margolis has the story of how some Americans may soon be getting jobs in Springfield, MA — courtesy of a Chinese company that plans to make subway cars in the US. We also have the latest on Turkey's failed coup aftermath.
Yesterday's deadly attack on Baton Rouge police officers makes for a grim backdrop to the opening of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. The World's Leo Hornak and Maria Murriel are both there. Leo takes the pulse of Trump supporters at a biker rally, and Maria speaks to Native Lives Matter protesters. Then we head to Turkey to hear about the aftermath of Friday night's attempted military coup. Turkish authorities are rounding up thousands of military and government personnel supposedly involved in trying to overthrow the government. Finally, we ask this question: Can breadfruit solve world hunger?
Today we bring you late-breaking news of a military coup in Turkey, plus the latest on the attack in the French city of Nice, where more than 80 people were killed Thursday when a truck drove through crowds of Bastille Day revelers. We hear what it means for the French to be living in a seemingly never-ending state of emergency. Plus, a spike in anti-Muslim rhetoric here in the US. And a preview of our coverage of next week's Republican National Convention. (This episode was recorded at 6 p.m. EST.)
Wednesday on The World we hear from Dallas area Imam Omar Suleiman. He spoke at Tuesday's memorial service for the five police officers who were killed last week in an ambush. Plus, one of the few things Russians and Ukrainians can agree on these days — television. And, why Larry, the 10 Downing Street cat, seems to be a rock of stability amid big political changes in Britain.
