24 Nov 2018. Donald Trump is the President of the United States. He is 72 years old and of the Republican Party. The Vice President is Michael Richard Pence, age 59, of the Republican Party. In Paris, France, there were violent demonstrators who were staging road blockades because rising fuel (i.e. petrol/gasoline) taxes have been occurring. Two days ago was Thanksgiving day, and yesterday was "Black Friday." As usual, brawls and fights over goods occurred in retail shops, as it did last year.
