Diane talks with Dr. Fauci about the growing number of daily cases, the potential for a vaccine, and what the next several months might look like in this country.
When Ashraf Ghani was inaugurated president of Afghanistan last September, he publicly acknowledged his wife, Rula Ghani, the new first lady. It was a hugely symbolic moment in a country where first ladies have kept a low profile and remained mainly behind closed doors. Rula Ghani has chosen not to follow in this tradition. She is running an office in the presidential palace and is working to shape the troubled country’s future. She joins Diane to discuss her country, her upbringing and what she hopes to achieve as First Lady.
