Skimm This: Infrastructure, Venezuelan Protests, and Burkinis

Apr 30, 2019

It’s April 30th. Today, we Skimm’d This:

  • President Donald Trump met with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to chat about infrastructure. It’s a bipartisan issue – depending on who foots the bill.

  • Massive protests erupted today in Venezuela - to try to bring the number of presidents in the country from two to one.

  • One swimsuit model has making history totally covered.

  • And Japan’s emperor has a new groove: retirement.

theSkimm: Infrastructure across the US needs a reboot. President Trump met with top Democrats to try to figure out how to make – and pay for – the fixes. In Venezuela, two people are still calling themselves prez. The US says it wants a “peaceful transition” - but today, things weren’t looking that peaceful. Also on today’s show: Sports Illustrated is making history in its swimsuit issue, and Japan is making history in the Imperial Palace.
