Rick Sanchez: Cold War is back on
Rick Sanchez discusses the Trump administration’s decision to abandon the historic INF treaty, struck by US President Reagan and Soviet Premier Gorbachev in 1988. There is no evidence that Russia is not in compliance with the treaty, but nothing now prevents the US and Russia from developing intermediate-range nuclear weapons.

Then Dan Cohen discusses reactions from Trump’s opposition in Congress and around the country and RT’s Daniel Hawkins reports from Moscow with Russian reactions.

Then economics and co-founder of Democracy at Work Prof. Richard Wolff joins to share his insights.
