As U.S. Special Envoy to the Middle East during the Obama administration and a key architect of the Northern Ireland Good Friday Agreement, former Senator George Mitchell has played a major role in trying to solve some of the world’s most intractable conflicts. Senator Mitchell joins us to speak about the current state of Middle East peace talks under the Trump administration. He'll also discuss why he thinks diplomacy and sanctions are the right approach to North Korea, and why the United States can’t look to China to de-escalate the situation.
