In a new series of tweets, President Trump appears to be blaming China for derailing talks with North Korea. He also raised questions about the future of joint military exercises between the U.S. and South Korea. Also, many say the 15-year prison sentence for former Texas police officer Roy Oliver in the killing of unarmed black teenager Jordan Edwards last year is justice for Edwards and his family. Critics say it sends a chilling message to police officers. And Johann Strauss II, known as "The Waltz King," helped popularize the waltz and other social dances in 19th-century Europe. We discuss some of Strauss' works and his impact with classical music columnist Fran Hoepfner. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's Aug. 30, 2018 full broadcast.
