‘Political Rewind’ replay: Congress puts Donald Trump in a Russian box

Today’s edition of GPB’s “Political Rewind” opens on Donald Trump’s decision to sign a bill imposing new sanctions on Russia (and Iran and North Korea) – despite the president’s description of the bill as seriously flawed.

Then there's the New York Times piece suggesting that the Trump administration is preparing to go after affirmative action in the nation's colleges and universities, on behalf of whites and Asians who claim discrimination. And, oh, yeah, the approval of Atlanta attorney Chris Wray as the new director of the FBI. And Trump endorsing U.S. Sen. David Perdue's bid to cut legal immigration in half.
