Your Call: Media coverage of Trump's first week in office & U.S.-Mexican relations

Jan 27, 2017

 


This week, on the media roundtable, we’ll discuss coverage of Donald Trump’s executive actions. The administration has ordered the EPA to stop communicating with the public and giving out grants. Trump also says he will bring back torture and black sites.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto canceled next week’s meeting with Trump after tensions rose over the wall and his administration’s sweeping immigration crackdown. Join us live at 10am, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
