Host Robin Young speaks with Barbara Slavin, director of the Future of Iran Initiative at the Atlantic Council, for the latest on President Trump's decision regarding the Iran nuclear deal. Also, Leonia, New Jersey, a city close to the George Washington Bridge, has banned nonresident drivers and those without destinations in Leonia from its residential streets during the morning and evening rushes. We speak with Leonia's mayor. And, Chinese exports of steel and aluminum are up according to the latest figures, despite new tariffs imposed by the Trump administration in March. Yesterday, we heard from an economist who says tariffs can protect American workers. Today, another economist says that view is misguided. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's May 8, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at hereandnow.org, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
