Fidel Castro, the leader of Cuba, died this week. Relations between the communist country and the US have gotten better in the last few years under Obama. The big questions are: What will Trump do? And should Obama attend the funeral? We speak to voices inside the island nation to get reactions to Castro's death.
Then, each of Trump's cabinet picks are felt throughout the world. We get reactions in our Global Media Spotlight and find out if Reality Journalism is alive and well in a post-election world.
Welcome to what Obama, Merkel and establishment politicians call "fake news." This not-so-new form of propaganda is plaguing the world, causing the destruction of democracy world wide. That's basically what Obama said in a press conference with German chancellor Angela Merkel. We've been telling you about the fake news for a long time on the Voice to America program and today, we'll dive in head first (again) in the battle against the "new" problem of fake news.
Then we're traveling around the globe, getting world perspective on the president elect. World leaders are calling in to congratulate Trump on his victory, saying they can't wait to work with him. Is this just business as usual, or were they bashing Trump from the beginning in case the establishment won? We'll speak to Egyptian and Israeli voices about what their leaders and people think about the president elect and any hopes they have for future relations with the US.
It's over. The mainstream media said it could never happen, but trump claimed victory in last Tuesday's election. CNN contributor Van Jones called Trump's victory a 'whitelash,' stirring riots and protests throughout the country. They saw what happened in Britain and what is happening in Europe, but they continued to say Trump had no chance. How could the mainstream media have been so wrong about what the people wanted?
What about the foreign media? On this special edition of Voice to America, we will be focusing and discussing the global media's coverage of the historic election. Then we're headed around the globe to our foreign voices. We'll be speaking to regular citizens from Russia, Mexico and the Middle East about what they see in the future during a Trump presidency.
Tony talks to voices in Europe and Mexico in the immediate aftermath of the election. Ivo from Slovakia says he saw Trump's win coming, but Jorge from Mexico thought Hillary would win. Will Trump really build a wall? Will NAFTA be scuttled? Listen to find out.
Well folks, we’re two days out from the election. The American election is indeed a global affair, so we’re spanning the planet to get final thoughts about the candidates. Mexico, Canada, Europe and the Middle East weigh in on the future of our country and the world as of November 8th.
Then we’ll discuss the newly released Julian Assange interview. The latest batch of emails show the US government knew Saudi Arabia and Qatar are funding ISIS. Was anyone surprised? These emails just confirm what we already suspected, but what does the Saudi and Qatari connection to The Clinton Foundation mean for the world?
