State of the Union
Hosted by CNN's Jake Tapper and Dana Bash, State of the Union features interviews with top newsmakers on politics and policy—covering Washington, the country, and the world.
First, United Kingdom Prime Minister Liz Truss sits down with Jake Tapper for her exclusive first US interview. Jake asks the new British leader about her view of the state of the “special relationship” between the UK and US, as well as how the West should respond to any escalation by Russian President Vladimir Putin in Ukraine. Jake also presses Truss on her controversial new tax plan and tensions with Europe and the Biden administration over her approach to Northern Ireland. Then, Rep. Adam Schiff tells Jake that he believes the Justice Department’s investigation into the January 6 attack on the Capitol “has been very slow.” Then, former Democratic Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen and former Republican Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam join Jake to discuss why they’re working to find common ground in a politically divided America. Finally, Jake calls on the leaders of the Western world to stand with Iranian women and protesters after the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in police custody.
