As a former KGB chief, Putin knows how to play Trump

While President Trump is one of the shrewdest and most clever politicians in our country, he was no match with Putin. When Putin joined the KGB, a spy agency, in 1975, he trained in the art of spying, such as using disguises and deception. Then he worked as a spy for several years, until he became the chief of all spies in Russia. He has learned to become a super deceiver, a killer, and mastered how to make false information disguised as a real truth.

Detaining immigrant children will be an ugly chapter in American history

Mistakes are continuously being repeated, most recently the lack of humanity towards immigrants. The Trump administration has only furthered the lack of respect and spread the terror associated with immigrants. Immigration policy is being changed and become more of a manhunt in order to secure the boarder and rid the nation of immigrants; kids are the ones that are suffering the most. They are being separated from their parents, held in cages, which is very similar to past events that the world looks back on and wishes they were different. This includes the Holocaust, the Armenian Genocide, Chinese internment camps, as well as the assimilation of Native Americans.
