For the final time in 2017, Mitch Harris talks with Paul Buchanan from 36th Parallel NZ on the latest news in the United States of America.

On the table tonight:
- Paul talks to us from the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, where the US-Mexico border passes through. What do locals make of Donald Trump's plan to build 'the wall'?
- Democrat Doug Jones defeats Roy Moore for the Alabama senate seat. What will this mean for Steve Bannon, and for Donald Trump's Presidency?
- The vote breakdown shows women and African-Americans voted in big numbers for Doug Jones (17% more women voted for Doug Jones over Roy Moore).
- Will this result see a falling out between President Trump and Steve Bannon?
- Rex Tillerson is trying to settle the North Korea situation, saying it's time to have talks 'without pre-conditions'.
- The fallout after Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
- Republicans are attacking special investigator Robert Mueller. How bad is it getting?
