Fed OKs Wall Street wolves to resume risky trading

President Trump is just one judge shy of 200 confirmations, which could cement his legacy in the federal courts for the foreseeable future. Also, a reported ‘shortage’ of fresh meat in the US has since been debunked as an effort to lure meat workers back to their jobs while remaining competitive with Chinese farmers. Plus, a Supreme Court ruling has made it almost impossible to sue big banks for making investments using pension funds.

RT correspondent Brigida Santos explains how amendments to the Volcker Rule will allow big banks to resume the kind of risky investments which led to the 2008 financial crash.

Legal journalist Mollye Barrows breaks down the state of foster care programs in America, including Trump’s latest executive order demanding more resources be made available for child welfare programs.
