It was a long shot, but there were a few people on both sides of
the political aisle that held out hope that the U.S.
Tweeter-in-Chief would listen to dozens of Fortune 500 CEOs and
many of his closest advisors, including Secretary of State Rex

There was the moment that Donald Trump, while addressing the graduates of Liberty University, displayed his ignorance of the voting age of citizens of the United States (the country of which, the last I checked, he is still President).

immigration. Since then, international students have been
understandably anxious about where they stand under an "America
First" Trump administration. And so, to find out what's going on

Although President Trump might be a man with a mission, it’s becoming increasingly clear to people on all points of the political spectrum that he’s a man with very little management prowess.

no joke; I'm dead serious. After listening to this fascinating and
not the least bit morbid podcast in which two experienced New
