Pegging Down Nafta & Vanishing Princes

On this week’s episode of OM’s Chatter, we take peek at what’s happening a la Arab Spring in Morocco, how the ex-leader of the free world’s trip went, and more!

First, the gang unites to recap the facets of Trump’s Abrahamic Religions Roadtrip and the G7 & NATO Summits that closely followed. Did he really embarrass himself that badly? What does his agenda mean for the future of the “free world,” and the alliance that has stood for nearly 70 years?

Next up we swing by the Philippine’s to ponder how Duterte’s “war on drugs” is going, and whether his strongman styles are causing any dip in his approval ratings (spoiler alert: most people are apparently okay with the way things are going).

Last but not least, Vennesa weighs in with her ‘African Bit’ of the week: protests in the Rif region of Morocco and what might unfold in the wake of the arrest of a prominent activist, and tells us about ‘Aleppo Boil,’ a disease that’s making a comeback in the beleaguered city as the health and sanitation situation continues to deteriorate.
