In hour two of Here & Now's March 8, 2018 full broadcast, President Trump promised to restore manufacturing to the United States when he was campaigning for office. How effective will his policies be at doing that? We ask Mark Muro, senior fellow and policy director in the metropolitan policy program at the Brookings Institution. Also, Florida Gov. Rick Scott says he will talk with the families of Parkland school shooting victims before deciding whether to sign or veto a package of gun control measures passed by the Florida legislature. WFSU's Sascha Cordner joins us with the latest. And Yves Daccord, director-general of the International Committee of the Red Cross, discusses managing crises in countries like Syria and Yemen, the future of humanitarian aid and recent news of sexual misconduct within the organization.
