On Todays Show

On GPS at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN:

Fareed gives his take on the investigation into Russia’s role in the presidential election, and why President Trump’s past words might come back to haunt him.
 
“Trump is now more than just a real estate developer, a franchise marketer, or a celebrity TV star,” Fareed argues. “He is president, and he is dealing with matters of war and peace, law and justice. Words matter, and in a wholly different way than he has ever understood. They build national credibility, deter enemies, reassure allies and execute the law. In high office, in public life, words are not so different from actions. They are everything.”

Also on today’s show: Joining GPS to discuss President Trump’s trip to the Middle East, his speech on Islam, and the Iranian election result will be Elliott Abrams, senior fellow for Middle Eastern studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, Vali Nasr, dean of the Johns Hopkins University Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, the New Yorker‘s Robin Wright, and Thomas Erdbrink, Tehran bureau chief for the New York Times.
 
Plus: Fareed discusses this week’s political developments, including the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to the Russia investigation. Joining him are the New York TimesBret Stephens, The Atlantic‘s David Frum and journalist and author Ron Kessler.
