New numbers out this week point to a strengthening U.S. economy. The unemployment rate is at its lowest since the Great Recession and economic growth is ticking up. How will Trump’s administration build on this? Kai and Andrea take stock of the recovery and Trump’s latest Cabinet pick, retired Marine General James Mattis.
