In this week’s Trend Lines podcast, WPR’s managing editor, Frederick Deknatel, and senior editor, Robbie Corey-Boulet, discuss U.S. President Donald Trump’s sudden decision to cancel his upcoming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. They also weigh in on Italy’s new populist government. For the Report, Simon Allison talks with Robbie about Zimbabwe, which is gearing up for elections later this year, the first in the post-Mugabe era. New leaders from both the government and opposition are finding their feet, though they’re haunted by familiar problems.
