Shake hands with the President

 

Today in the U.S. Trump prepares for the State of the Wall address with the back drop of the recent Cold War era nuclear treaty suspension and the recently exposed spreadsheet of his executive time, or non-presidential activities. Israel proceeds with the construction of their galvanized steel barrier around the Gaza Strip and Netanyahu can be seen in his reelection campaign posters shaking hands with his new running mate. Venezuela still trying to figure out who their president is while many outside leaders voice growing support for the opposition. Egypt’s parliament debates a motion to extend presidential term limits for El-Sissi, and unplugging the speakers while they have seats in the game of musical chairs.

On this day February 5th U.S. occupation of Cuba ends (1904), former U.S.S.R. declares separation of Church and State (1918), and French President de Gaulle calls for Algeria’s independence (1962).
