What A Day
New Executive Order

In This Episode

  • Trump signed a bunch of executive orders and actions over the weekend that he presented as a fix to our economic problems. But the reality is much less transformative. We explain what his actions do (cut unemployment) and what they don’t do (protect renters from eviction).
  • ByteDance, the Chinese company behind TikTok, is planning to sue the Trump administration over its ban on US companies doing business with the app. The executive order against TikTok also bans US dealings with WeChat, another Chinese-owned app.
  • And in headlines: a massive oil spill in Mauritius, protests in Beirut, and Amazon goes to the mall.
