Earthquakes; Diminished U.S. Standing; Women's Soccer

Jul 8, 2019

The two biggest earthquakes to hit California since 1994 rocked an area about 120 miles northeast of Los Angeles on Thursday and Friday. Seismologists say a big earthquake happens every 100 years in California. The last big one hit 160 years ago. Is California prepared for the big one? If not, what does that mean for them and the rest of us? They are the fifth biggest economy in the world.

Also this hour: Some worry that President Trump's foreign policy will leave lingering damage to America's reputation long after this administration leaves the White House. If the leaked cables from the British ambassador to the U.S. or the global reception of the U.S. Women's National Team are an indication, we've got a lot of work to do to repair relations around the world.

Lastly, the U.S. Women's National Team won their fourth World Cup, dominating their competitors and having a lot of confidence and spirit. Does America deserve this team?
