    Trump's First Visit to LA as President Met by Opposition​​​​​​​

    President Donald Trump is in Los Angeles for the first time since taking office. He was welcomed by an unprecedented security detail of federal and local law enforcement agencies as a swift downpour threatened to disrupt a mass protest tonight.

    Before arriving in San Diego this morning, President Trump feuded with Governor Jerry Brown saying California was run poorly and that the place is totally out of control.

    • Brazil's Former President Lula on U.S. Intervention in Latin America & 15th Anniv. of Iraq Invasion

      We continue our conversation with former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. The former union leader co-founded Brazil's Workers' Party and served as president from 2003 to 2010. During that time, he helped lift tens of millions of Brazilians out of poverty. As he runs for president again, we discuss the 15th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, and U.S. interference in Latin America.

    • Exclusive: Brazilian Presidential Candidate Lula on Facing Jail as He Runs for President Again

      We continue our conversation with former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, the highly popular former union leader who is running for president in this year's election even as he is facing a possible prison term on what many believe to be trumped-up corruption charges tied to the sprawling probe known as "Operation Car Wash." Lula was convicted of accepting a beachside apartment from an engineering firm vying for contracts at the state oil company Petrobras. But many of Lula's supporters say the conviction was politically motivated. President Lula responds to the charges against him. "We're awaiting for the accusers to show at least some piece of evidence that indicates that I committed any crime," he notes.

    • Former Brazilian President Lula: It's Clear Marielle Franco's Assassination Was Premeditated

      In a Democracy Now! exclusive, we spend the hour with Brazil's former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who is now running for president again. We begin our discussion with the assassination of 38-year-old Rio city councilmember and human rights activist Marielle Franco, who was killed last week. Franco, who was a black lesbian, was known for her fierce criticism of police killings in Brazil's impoverished favela neighborhoods. Her death comes at a pivotal moment for Brazil and the future of democracy in South America's largest country. Just last month, President Michel Temer ordered Brazil's military to assume control of police duties in Rio. "The only thing that she did was to work against the assassination of black people in the peripheral areas in the defense of human rights," says Lula da Silva.
