The Bottom Line on Donald the deal maker

9/15/2017

9/8/2017
More
The Deal Maker President may have achieved his first bipartisan deal this week by joining with Nancy Pelosi and her Senate counterpart, Chuck Schumer, on the debt ceiling and government spending - but Republicans weren't happy.

8/18/2017
More
Every day is a test of the president's ability to succeed as a leader. This week, faced with a test of his moral instinct, President Trump, who built his reputation on bluntness about essential truths, could not speak clearly about racism and bigotry, raising fresh questions about his moral compass, discipline and whether he has irreparably crippled his ability to govern a diverse nation. Plus, the departure of yet another top White House aide. Face the Nation moderator John Dickerson...

The Bottom Line: Kelly > Scaramucci

8/4/2017

The Bottom Line: He does love holding my hand

7/21/2017
More
A seven-year promise to end Obamacare may go unfulfilled despite last-minute scrambling and closed-door brow furrowing in the Senate, and the president and his aides prepare for trench warfare to defend against the special counsel.

Duration: 00:38:15

The Bottom Line: The shooting and the obstruction probe

6/16/2017
More
A week of tragedy in Washington and a president under investigation for obstruction of justice.

Face the Nation Moderator John Dickerson looks back at the week in review

Duration: 00:36:59


The Bottom Line: Comey goes to Congress

6/10/2017
More
All eyes this week were on former FBI Director James Comey, who testified Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
