The Scramble: G-20 Summit; Donald Trump Jr.; Diaperless Infants

Jul 10, 2017

President Trump left a trail of confusion when he left the G-20 Summit this weekend. While the president thinks he gained concessions favorable to the United States, many feel he isolated America from longstanding consensus on issues that define liberal democracy. Instead, he sought consensus with Vladimir Putin, despite the certainty by U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. election. 

Also this hour: We learned this weekend that Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer with ties to the Kremlin in June 2016, two weeks after his father secured the Republican nomination for president. He didn't report the meeting before The New York Times broke the story and offered changing reasons for the meeting as reporters exposed new information. He wasn't alone. Then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner also attended the meeting that was arranged by a friend of Trump, Jr.'s who has ties to Russia. 

Lastly, most new parents assume there are no alternatives to using diapers on their young children. Two doctors tell us that's not the case.
