    On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discuss the decision by General Motors to close plants in the US and President Trump's aggressive response to this move. Will Trump cut federal subsidies to the company and how would this decision play with his populist, America-First economic agenda?

    Mark Frost — Economist and Professor | Trump Takes Aim at General Motors Over JOBS

    Ian Miles Cheong — Journalist who Covers Media, Politics & Culture | Gaming's Impact on the Economy & the Future of Game Design

    The video game 'Red Dead Redemption 2' grossed an incredible $725 million in its opening weekend. Many people underestimate the impact gaming has on the economy, but they would be wrong to discount its size and scope. Journalist Ian Miles Cheong returns to the program to discuss hot trends in gaming and why big money will continue to flow into this industry moving forward.

    Three US service members were killed yesterday in Afghanistan in the the most recent deadly attack targeting American forces overseas. US Army Officer Danny Sjursen joins Garland and Lee to discuss this incident and some of the shortcomings of American foreign policy over the past two decades.

    Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has enacted martial law in the country as tension remains high between Russia and Ukraine. Ryan Cristián, founder and editor of 'The Last American Vagabond', returns to the show to give his take on the current situation and how this story is being covered by the US mainstream media.
