PERSPECTIVES | With Tracy Alexander | Sunday, January 20th 201948min
Part 1 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has landed in Chad for a visit to the African country since those relations soured. Netanyahu and his Chad counterpart Idriss Deby have made history by renewing diplomatic ties severed since 1972. At a joint press conference, Deby said several agreements have been signed with Netanyahu, and Netanyahu for his part called it a breakthrough for the Arab and Muslim world. Part 2 Former Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman has launched his election campaign with the message that he can't be intimidated. In a press conference in Tel Aviv on the 20th anniversary of his Israel's Beitanu party establishment, he slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Regarding Israel elections, what is on Benny Gantz's agenda?. Part 3 Democrats have rejected U.S. President Donald Trump's plan to end the government shutdown in a bid to get the $5.7 billion in funding for the Mexico border wall. Trump has offered temporary protection from deportation for some undocumented immigrants, it also included millions of dollars for humanitarian aid and drug detection technology. One point left unaddressed in Trump's speech, those 800,000 federal workers going without paychecks. Part 4 Thousands have marched across the U.S. in the third annual Women's March. This year's march came against the backdrop of a partial government shutdown now in its 29th day. The issue of anti-Semitic sentiment is shared by some of the demonstrations coaches and have caused some Jewish-American women and organizations to bow out of the march this year. Also, other kinds of offshoot march exist, footage that came out of Kentucky show a group of young boys wearing Make America Great Again caps mocking a Native American Vietnam Veteran, and the video went viral.
