Had a great #AxeFiles w/fmr UK PM @GordonBrown , who talked about dealing w/Putin. "You have got to show strength. You cannot show weakness...He wants to control Ukraine, but he's an opportunist & will only do what he thinks he can get away with." Pod👉

Honored, this MLK week, to sit w/Dr. King's lieutenant, Andrew Young, who was at his side for many of the great civil rights battles. "He'd say, 'if you haven't found anything you willing to die for, you’re really not fit to live.'" #AxeFiles pod👉
