Political commentator David Rothkopf on Biden's first trip overseas and why he says America's biggest foreign policy challenge is our own polarized politics.
In 2017, when Larry Krasner was elected Philadelphia’s district attorney, he came from an unusual background for the job.

Instead of the typical “tough on crime” talk, he promised to reform the system. He took on cops, he said he would end mass incarceration, and he advocated for the Black Lives Matter movement.
Krasner became a nationally known figure for his work. But now he is up for a re-election and is facing a tough primary challenge.
Diane spoke with him Friday morning.
