Hunter Gray, a Civil Rights leader in JXN, MS, in the early 1960s, died earlier this week. He is most famously known for taking part in the 1963 Woolworth sit-in in JXN, which yielded this iconic photo. Gray is sitting at the counter, on the left. #Mississippi #NonViolence

A reporter asked “"Did you want President Trump to win the election and did you direct any of your officials to help him do that?”

Putin said “Yes I did!”

People may say Putin ignored the 2nd part of the question.
