All In: The Potential Consequences of Donald Trump's Dangerous Embrace of Saudi Arabia's Foreign Policy—with Bill Hartung

Add to this Saudi and US efforts to isolate Iran, possibly including stepped up military action against Iran or its allies in the region, yet another conflict in a region already suffering from multiple wars seems possible. How likely is a new Mideast war, and what changes in US policy are needed to make a new conflict less likely?
