President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are set to meet at the White House on Wednesday.

It comes at a difficult time for the Trump administration after the resignation of national security adviser Michael Flynn on Monday, and reports that Trump campaign staff had repeated contact with Russian intelligence officials before the election.

First responders in Louisville, Kentucky, received 52 overdose emergency calls in a 32-hour span last week. It’s the highest rate of overdose calls so far this year in a state that has one of the highest overdose death rates in the country.

Here & Now’s Robin Young talks with Dr. Robert Couch, the emergency department medical director at Norton Audubon Hospital in Louisville.

President Trump campaigned on a promise to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, which he called “unfair” to the United States. At a joint press conference Monday with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, however, Trump said his administration would only be “tweaking” NAFTA.

At President Trump’s last two press conferences with foreign leaders, he’s only taken questions from reporters working for organizations that are viewed as friendly to him. That allowed him to avoid discussing the fate of now former national security adviser Michael Flynn at Monday’s joint press conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn resigned as President Trump’s national security adviser Monday night, after acknowledging that he “inadvertently briefed the Vice President Elect and others with incomplete information” about his phone calls with the Russian ambassador.
