Trump should not strengthen US-Saudi ties

On tonight’s Big Picture, Thom Hartmann talks with Medea Benjamin about the irony of Donald Trump visiting the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia – home to two of Islam’s holiest sites – on his first foreign trip as US president after running one of the most Islamophobic presidential campaigns in American history. Then, he talks with Alex Lawson and Audrey Henson about Trump’s attack on Obamacare subsidies for low-income families, how the president is breaking his promise not to cut social security, and Billionaire DeVos’ plan to scrap student debt forgiveness.
