RT America, Released on 8/29/19

The US Navy sent a warship near contested islands in the South China Sea for a “freedom of navigation” operation. Beijing condemned Washington’s “illegal attempt at maritime hegemony.” Investigative journalist Ben Swann joins Scottie Nell Hughes to discuss. He argues that the move is tantamount to the US “tearing its shirt open and flexing as hard as it can.”
