Following a series of proposed budget cuts, many fear that President Trump could be taking money away from Meals on Wheels, which helps bring food to senior citizens across the country, many of whom would not have quality food otherwise. To help keep this from happening, Colin Kaepernick donated $50,000 to the program, according to The New York Daily News.
Last weekend in Chicago, a 15-year-old Black girl was raped by a gang of five or six boys and men. Making it several levels more horrific, this vicious assault was streamed on Facebook Live.
News stories about GOP women feeling “betrayed” by the Republican Party have been breaking since late 2016. Sometimes the breakups come with drama and fanfare. At other times, GOP women, like Hawaiian Rep. Beth Fukumoto, choose clear and measurable actions that inevitably lead them to seek political asylum with the Democratic Party. But, what do these recent shifts say about the Republican Party, millennials, and women?
One of the many jobs of the president of the United States is to be the face of the nation and act as a middle man between American citizens and other countries. In other words, Donald Trump is currently our main contact with foreign leaders.
Let that sink in for a few minutes.
Last week, the Washington, D.C. Police Department informed the public that around 10 Black and brown teenage girls had gone missing. According to The Washington Post, the girls had gone missing in January, as had around 200 other individuals (apparently typical for the DC area). There has been no spike in missing children–the police are just using social media to publicize the story. However, this story is important due to the lack of media attention around missing Black and Latinx children.
Donald Trump wants to reform the federal government as we know it. This week, Trump proposed very deep cuts to the government while ramping up military and Department of Justice spending.

If only old Kanye was here to comment on the conditions facing young people under the Trump Administration. Then, we might have some public dialogue about it.
From the moment of Kanye West’s now infamous concert rant, the multi-platinum rapper made it clear that he was #teamTrump. But recently, Kanye deleted any trace of his support for Trump from his social media. I can only hope he learned his lesson, after Kanye’s huge fan base of diverse young people were greatly disappointed by his Trump comments. Though Hillary Clinton received a lot of criticism going into and during the course of the 2016 election, young people overwhelmingly supported Clinton over Trump. If it wasn’t already apparent during his ongoing attacks both on the campaign trail and as POTUS, Donald Trump doesn’t care about the consequences of his extremely unpopular and damaging policies his administration has already implemented.
In the remixed version of the old Kanye West: Donald Trump does not care about young people. If he did, he wouldn’t be trying to take away our health care.
President Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban 2.0 is facing the same roadblocks as its predecessor despite being “watered down.”
As part of her campaign to help fight childhood obesity, Michelle Obama introduced the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act during the 2012-2013 school-year. Under this program, school lunches became healthier by replacing high sodium and otherwise unhealthy foods with fruits and other options.
Many students wondered what happened to their favorite snacks and GOP lawmakers were infuriated at what they considered government over-involvement. With a new administration in the White House, they’re looking to force Obama’s system out and re-establish the old guard.
Ever since he started his campaign, President Donald Trump has made it clear that he would break from tradition and wouldn’t releases his taxed to the public. Many suspected that this was his way of avoiding a major hit in the polls due to suspicion of illicit business practices.
However, yesterday was filled with anticipation as MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow announced that she’d obtained Trump’s tax forms and would reveal them on her show later that night.
