Marketplace Morning Report

04/27/2018: What really drove Trump's victory?

April 27, 2018

(U.S. Edition) North and South Korea have pledged they will never fight another war — but are these truce talks too good to be true? We'll take a look at their decision to pursue "complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula." Afterwards, we'll talk about the percentage of GDP that Germany spends on defense, and how it's committed to hitting a 2 percent target by 2024, like all NATO countries. Plus: We chat with political science professor Diana Mutz about her recent study arguing that the 2016 presidential election was not, as prevailing narratives suggest, driven by economic frustration.
