The ceasefire in Syria; then, The Donald J. Trump Foundation

Listen 00:46:23

Guests: Joshua Landis, David Fahrenthold

We begin this hour of Radio Times by taking a look at the collaboration between Washington and Moscow in ending the fighting in Syria.  A recent ceasefire agreement has some Pentagon officials ill at ease about the potential outcomes and the effectiveness of the deal.  We’ll be joined by JOSHUA LANDIS, associate professor and director of the Center for Middle East Studies at the University of Oklahoma and the President of the Syrian Studies Association. Then, we’ll spend the second half of the show taking a look at the finances of The Donald J. Trump Foundation.  The presidential candidate has attacked the Clinton Foundation for less-than-noble practices. But recent investigations from the Washington Post reveals that Trump’s organization, while significantly smaller than Clinton’s, has engaged in questionable practices.  We’re joined by the lead investigative reporter for that story, DAVID FAHRENTHOLD to hear about where the foundation’s money comes from and where it goes.
