Trump appears to joke about Native American genocide in Elizabeth Warren 'Trail of Tears' tweet

Trump appears to joke about Native American genocide in Elizabeth Warren 'Trail of Tears' tweetDonald Trump appeared to make a joke about the Trail of Tears – the forced relocation of Native Americans leading to the deaths of thousands of people – as he mocked the launch of Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign. The president tweeted about the senator for Massachusetts hours after she made her bid for the White House official on Saturday, deriding her claims at Native American ancestry by calling her “Pocahontas”. Will she run as our first Native American presidential candidate, or has she decided that after 32 years, this is not playing so well anymore?

Latest group of Central American migrants proceed with northern trek

Latest group of Central American migrants proceed with northern trekAround 2,400 migrants left a city shelter to begin the journey from the Mexican capital early Thursday morning, the latest caravan to embark upon the risky path to the U.S.-Mexican border despite U.S. President Donald Trump’s determination to prevent them from entering. Since last October, thousands of mostly Central American migrants have sought to cross into the United States, many traveling in caravans in order to minimize the risks of kidnapping and attacks by members of criminal gangs while in Mexican territory.
