Changing the subject: How will Trump deflect next?
Currently, the Trump administration is desperately looking to save themselves instead of going after the Russians who hacked the 2016 election. But, even with Robert Mueller closing in on his administration, the President will likely not resign until he has exhausted every other option.

There are 125 days until the general election and while each major party has chosen their nominee, there is a small faction that refuses to give up the ghost for failed primary challenger Bernie Sanders.
