In the coming year the Senate is set to explore Russian sympathies among Donald Trump’s cabinet nominees as it, simultaneously, investigates Vladimir Putin’s 2016 election intrusions that, even, extended down to individual state levels.

Within the past few weeks, he has helped secure jobs at an automobile factory in Kentucky and at a Carrier plant in Indiana.

According to this fictitious narrative, Obama’s strong leadership saved the economy and led to our “recovery,” but, in reality, we face today a RINO or “Recovery in Name Only” economy.
