Sanders defends Trump voters: I don't think they're racists, sexists or homophobes

Elijah Smith's curator insight, April 5, 12:16 PM
 In the article Senator Bernie Sanders speaks out against those who supported Donald Trump. He says that he doesn't think that those who support trump are bad people. He then follows up with saying the Republicans didn't win, the democrats just fell short. 

I think this is perfect. As an American I love seeing people so involved with politics, even if they disagree with me. I also think it is important to see people other than the president speak out on social issues. In this case Bernie Sanders defends the people that didn't support him or the democratic party. Even after losing in the primary election and dropping out of the presidential race, Sanders still has an active voice in today's society. Sanders is trying to rally the people together instead of criticizing them and tearing the country apart.

Trump fires top government lawyer who defied immigration order

Trump fires top government lawyer who defied immigration order | United States Politics | Scoop.it

Elijah Smith's curator insight, April 5, 12:24 PM
This article describes why a governmental lawyer, Sally Yates, got fired. According to MSN Yates was fired just hours after defying a bill passed from the white house. Trump's travel ban was the bill in question. Yates said that this ban was a bad thing for America. 

I personally think that this is pathetic. This article shows the fascism in place in today's society. Anyone who speaks out or has different views can be fired. It is ridiculous to think that one party can have this much power. It is scary, the country is turning into a fascist dictatorship. We have the right as American Citizens to not only have different views, but to speak out against our government if we disagree. Sally Yates was doing her job, doing what she thought is best for the United States and she was punished for doing so.
