Approval Rating


“Trump’s approval rating has risen to the highest point

in his presidency…according to a Washington Post-ABC

News poll.”—Front page, The Washington Post

“Accounts from a child detention complex in Texas are

the stuff of nightmares.”

—Front page, The New York Times (same day)

Trump found one that is for the ages:
You separate folks from their kids,
And cram the kids in squalid cages.
