Trump Meets Putin In Hamburg

Jul 7, 2017

Today on “Political Rewind,” we have the first official face-to-face meeting of Trump and Putin. A conversation slotted for 30 minutes went longer than two hours, but what was truly accomplished? Set against the framework of a volatile G-20, we break down the conversation. 

The panel also looks at the upcoming confirmation hearing for Christopher Wray as the new head of the FBI.

In Georgia politics, Mayor Kasim Reed has a kind word for gubernatorial candidate Stacey Evans. Is it also a jab at another candidate, Stacey Abrams? Who's best positioned at this point and what kind of chance do the Democrats have this time out?

Finally, we talk with Jared Sexton Yates, a Georgia college professor who's earned the wrath of the alt-right for identifying the person who created the video meme of Trump bashing CNN.

Panelists:

Jim Galloway – Political Columnist, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Jason Carter – Fmr. Democratic candidate for governor

Chip Lake – Republican Strategist
