Hyer's Highlights: Trump on UK Knife Crime

US President Donald Trump – speaking at the National Rifle Association – criticised the level of knife crime in London, comparing one of the city’s hospitals to a literal “war zone”.


This is not the first time that Trump has remarked on security in the UK capital: he recently claimed that London overtook New York’s murder rate, and in 2017, he condemned London Mayor Sadiq Khan for his handling of terrorist attacks in the city. He also claimed that the terror attack in Paris in 2015 – in which 130 people were killed – could have been prevented if more people had been armed.

In her message and his respective response, listener Chloe and Benji Her outlined how allowing guns in British society won’t help fix knife crime, or any other societal problem for that matter.

Hyer's Highlights: Netanyahu doubts Iran

This week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unveiled, in a shocking presentation, what he said were copies of concealed Iranian files detailing a project to build nuclear weapons. The presentation suggested that Iran had breached the Nuclear Deal which had been put in place whilst Obama was President of the United States.

Whilst what Netenyahu presented was not evidence of a violation of the Iran deal, but it does nonetheless imply that Iran misled and deceived the world about its nuclear intentions, and therefore is not necessarily a reliable partner.


This has led to the inevitable question - Is it time to abandon the Iranian nuclear deal?

During Benji Hyer's Sunday radio show, listener Jonathan set out to explain simply why Netanyahu’s claims are baseless. Benji agreed, stressing that it would be foolish for the US, UK, China, Russia and Germany to from withdraw from the deal.

Hyer's Highlights: Trump's Potential Peace Prize

Leaders of North and South Korea have met for only their third summit since the Korean War armistice was signed in 1953.

It saw Kim Jong-un become the first North Korean leader to set foot in South Korea since the end of the Korean War in 1953. He warmly shook hands with his South Korean counterpart, and then stepped symbolically over the military demarcation line to the North Korean side. Both men agreed to work to rid the peninsula of nuclear weapons, and in a rare move, the leaders committed to seek “complete denuclearisation”.


In May or June, US President Donald Trump is expected to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, for the first ever meeting between a leader of the North and a sitting US president. South Korean President Moon Jae-in said publicly too that Trump deserved big credit for bringing about talks to discuss peace with the North, claiming that “it could be a resulting work of the US-led sanctions and pressure”.

On Benji Hyer's Sunday radio show, he asked whether Trump could be worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize for his perceived contribution to the process. Listener Rashida, messaging from the USA, admitted that Trump “deserves at least some of the credit”, but Benji feels that the US President has had zero positive contribution to the progress.
