After Iran admitted accidentally shooting down a Ukrainian passenger plane, the regime finds itself under pressure from its own people and over the weekend, President Trump tweeted his support for the growing protests. To break this all down, Mohammad Ali Shabani, an Iran research at SOAS University of London, joins Christiane Amanpour in London. The doomed Flight 752 outbound from Iran was heading towards Kiev and eleven Ukrainian nationals lost their lives on board after it was shot down. Danylo Lubvisky was the Ukrainian Deputy Foreign Minister at the time of the MH17 disaster and he speaks from his experience of the fallout this will cause. This week, Beijing's top trade negotiator has touched down in DC with one aim; to bring an end to a bitter economic war between the two superpowers. Evan Osnos has written extensively on this subject for The New Yorker and he gives his analysis of the relations between the U.S. and China. Our Hari Sreenivasan sits down with Chris Hughes, co-founder of Facebook, to talk about his concerns that the tech giant is too powerful and may be a potential risk to liberal democracy. He is now leading the battle against corporate monopolies, a fight that could bring to face-to-face with the company he helped build. via Knit
