With a trade war with China souring markets and the fallout of his defense of Russia at the G7, Trump spent his day tweeting about all kinds of things including a denial there are bed bugs at his resort near Miami where he just suggested the 2020 G7 should be held. We discuss all that, plus what measures the U.S. intelligence community is taking to combat Moscow's attacks in the 2020 election. Robert Costa, A.B. Stoddard, Karen DeYoung, Frank Figliuzzi, Clint Watts, Eliza Collins, and Shane Goldmacher all join the program.
