The beginning of the end?

We live in monumental times, which will forever alter the study of political science. Do not take for granted the Freedom Of The Press, Freedom of Religion, Freedom to “Provide for the Common Defense, Promote the General Welfare, Secure the Blessings of  Liberty, For Ourselves and our Prosperity.”

Is it the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency? History will reveal the truth. Meanwhile a generation of immigrant children will be scarred for life.
