(U.S. Edition) Mexico has a new president: Andrés Manuel López Obrador, a leftist who won Mexico’s election in a landslide, with 53 percent of the vote. On the heels of his victory, we’ll take a look at what’s on his economic agenda. Afterwards, we’ll chat with Reddit cofounder and CEO Steve Huffman about the Charlottesville tragedy and whether artificial intelligence could play a role in looking over content on the site.
