The United Nations Security Council votes Friday on a US resolution aiming to indefinitely extend the arms embargo on Iran. Meanwhile, Western countries have offered aid to Lebanon. RT America’s Rachel Blevins reports. As the Trump administration revels in a newly brokered deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Palestine has recalled its ambassador to the UAE. Meanwhile, Brian Hook is no longer the US special envoy to Iran. Instead, Elliott Abrams, who was convicted in the Iran Contra scandal and involved in attempts to incite regime change in Venezuela and other countries, will fill the position. Former UK MP George Galloway and Scott Ritter, a former UN weapons inspector and former US Marine Corps intelligence officer, discuss. Plus, after a two-year investigation, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) has accused Yale University of discriminating against Asian and white students during the freshman application process. The agency formally ordered the Ivy League school to halt this practice for at least one year. Attorney and media analyst Lionel dives in.
