It has been a busy week for US President Donald Trump and his foreign policy aids on the diplomatic front. From news economic sanctions against Iran, to a truce in the trade war he leads against China, Trump showcased his favorite and maybe most effective negotiating tool: economic warfare. He also made history in North Korea, thanks to his rather unorthodox diplomatic methods. He's however unlikely to make history for his Palestine/Israel peace plan. Everything explained, thanks to our producer Lisa Boudet.

Community Legal Centres play a vital role in helping New Zealanders avoid legal problems or resolve those problems through education & legal representation. There has recently been a significant increase to Community Law Centres’ funding which has been made permanent in the Wellbeing Budget for this year. This was the first increase since the previous National Government froze core funding seven years ago. Additional funding will allow the 24 active Community Law Centres to expand on their work, as well as to provide fair and accessible legal support for New Zealanders. Louis talked with Green Party MP, Golriz Ghahraman, on the importance of these community law centres getting more recognition for their services to Aotearoa’s most vulnerable communities.
