I don’t think people realize how many service industry workers will continue going to work, cooking and serving your food, cleaning your houses, and selling you respirators, with flu-like symptoms because they don’t have paid sick days.

When it comes to ambassadorships, he just tends to hire the biggest donors.
His nominee for Amb. to Canada's husband donated $2.5 million to GOP causes and candidates since 2016:https://t.co/f8MJi9axsd

Afghan conflict: Trump hails deal with Taliban to end 18-year war https://t.co/2FfXNo2k3Z

Note: The Afghan "deal" (shorter version: We're leaving, see ya.) has nothing, btw, to do with Afghanistan. Everything in this Admin is about only one thing: Trump. This entire deal is about one line in a campaign speech. National interests, history have nothing to do with it.

Expecting to see a flurry of articles from liberal media sources praising the Trump administration for this peace agreement with the Taliban that would bring our troops home.
This is what they wanted when they voted Obama into office yes?

The thing is we need our farmers esp in NI where farming & agrifood is important to feed NI, GB & export! But the UK imports 50% of its food. 30% from EU & 11% from countries that we have trade deals with through EU. We will need our farmers more than ever #FactsNotUnicorns pic.twitter.com/ZTVNOhgehC
