Ernest Moniz served in Barack Obama's cabinet. He was one of the lead US negotiators of the Iran nuclear deal, signed in 2015. Now, Trump wants out, and we want to know what Moniz thinks about that. Also, journalist Ronan Farrow discusses the decline of US diplomacy, which he chronicles in his new book, "War on Peace." And for more than a century, North Carolina was the furniture-making center of America, but now, foreign competition has shrunk the industry there and many of the jobs have disappeared. But, North Carolina isn't done fighting.
