    Garland Nixon, Lee Stranahan

    On today's show, Lee and Garland discuss President Trump's announcement that he's reversing the Obama executive order on Cuba, plus talk about the tweet by the President announcing he's under investigation over the firing of James Comey and the addition of 4,000 more troops to Afghanistan.

    In round one of today's show, President Trump travels to Florida and announces he's reversing the Obama executive order on Cuba. Is this a bold step against repression or a step backward? And why is President Trump calling for the extradition of a convicted cop killer from Cuba so important?

    In round two, President Trump tweeted out recently that he is under investigation over the firing of James Comey. Was this tweet heard around the world as a brilliant PR move or another blunder for the president?

    Finally, in round three, it looks like additional troops will be headed to Afghanistan and some are wondering whether the military should be in charge of foreign policy, not just strategic decisions on the ground. We'll also discuss the latest offensive in the northern Syria city that may have killed a top Daesh leader.

    We'd love to get your feedback at radio@sputniknews.com.
