Interviews with: Rep. Michael McCaul, Rep. Mike Turner, Amb. Linda Thomas-Greenfield, Sen. Sherrod Brown
State of the Union
Feb 19, 2023

First, with tensions running high between the U.S. and China, CNN’s Pamela Brown asks House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul and Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Mike Turner about the U.S. response and whether President Biden is right to try and lower the temperature with China.

Plus, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield joins Pamela to discuss the state of U.S.-China relations after a “blunt” meeting between the nations’ top diplomats. She also reiterates U.S. support for Ukraine ahead of the one-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion.

And, some residents of East Palestine, Ohio say they have developed rashes, sore throats, nausea and headaches after toxic chemicals were released in a train derailment two weeks ago. Pamela asks Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown whether residents should trust officials’ assurances that the water and air are safe and what should be done to help those affected.

Finally, our panel discusses Nikki Haley’s 2024 presidential campaign and how potential Trump rivals should handle attacks from the former president.
