If anyone can help me by either a job opportunity or a plane ticket back to the States I would most appreciative thank You

Would a Democratic President Wield Power as Ruthlessly as Trump?

Thom plus logo Interestingly, the current divide in the Senate gives us an insight into how powerful a genuinely progressive Democratic president could be, and how much he or she could get done.
