quoting Edward Paul Lazearvia Yahoo Finance
Thursday, January 23, 2020

In early 2018, President Donald Trump reportedly expressed a desire for more immigrants from Norway and fewer from countries such as Haiti, labeling the latter with an expletive.

cited Bjorn Lomborgvia Treehugger
Thursday, January 23, 2020

From the USA to Australia to Brazil to Canadian provinces like Ontario and Alberta, so-called populists are denying climate change and rolling back measures to stop it.
