Democrat Gary Peters just began his third year as Michigan’s junior Senator.

He joined WKAR's Brooke Allen on Tuesday to discuss security, the Trump administration and other issues.  

Peters is now a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, so Brooke first asked him if he’s had a chance to learn about Lt. General H.R. McMaster, President Trump’s pick for National Security Adviser.
