This week President Donald Trump attended a historic summit with North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong Un. Trump surprised South Korea and some officials at the Pentagon when he announced the U.S. would stop military exercises with South Korea.

The president’s praise of Kim is much different than the comments he made about Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over the weekend. Another round of primaries on Tuesday brought many female victors and the fall of Republican Representative Mark Sanford from South Carolina. Sanford was an outspoken critic of Trump before he lost his primary election this week. Host Frank Stasio talks to Political Junkie Ken Rudinabout these headlines and more.

Amanda Magnus is the executive producer of Embodied, a weekly radio show and podcast about sex, relationships and health. She has also worked on other WUNC shows including Tested and CREEP.
