On FPF #141, I discuss the media's reaction to Trump's alleged statement on Africa and Haiti. 'The Resistance' was flabbergasted by the fact that Trump would say something so rude. However, US policy has caused genocide, famine, refugee crisis, slavery, epidemic, war, failed states, and countless war crimes that have gone unnoticed. I look at some of the real crimes and problems US presidents have caused across Africa and the Middle East. I talk about Trump saying within the Nuclear Agreement with Iran. I also update North Korea, Yemen, and Pakistan.
