Episode 14: How to Deal (with the Iran Deal)

Last week President Trump announced he would not certify the Iran Nuclear Agreement. He wants Congress to improve the conditions of the deal and to certify the deal themselves— and if they can’t or they won’t— he is willing to pull America from the multilateral agreement, much to the dismay of many international partners. 

This latest announcement had two people scrambling to defend the president: Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. Tillerson went on State of the Union and Face the Nation, and Haley went on Meet the Press and This Week. The message across the shows, however, were not consistent. In fact, you would think they each had a different boss and objective. On this week’s episode of Polilogue, we explore the differences between Tillerson and Haley and ask— who was more effective?
