    Trump-Kim Summit on Ice and Maduro Holds on in Venezuela

    With a strongly (and at times, softly) worded letter, the proposed Trump-Kim summit in Singapore on June 12 has been called off. We hear from Korea Chair Victor Cha on where the U.S. and North Korea can go from here. In Venezuela, President Nicolas Maduro has been elected for a second term, but without the kind of victory he would have liked. We hear from Moises Rendon on what is happening there, and what the international community can do to help. Hosted by Colm Quinn.
