(2) A family near Paradise, CA brought their US flag to wave as the President's motorcade passes. Today he is visiting some of the areas hit by wildfires.

A reminder of what's important at the moment: Helping the innocent Americans affected. POTUS will sort out the politicians.
(3) POTUS with Gov-Elect Newsom & Gov Brown at Paradise, CA. There is a lot of work to be done in getting through this crisis, then the time for accountability will come. I have no doubt that POTUS is fighting on behalf of the whole country to get things changed. #FixIt

Una de las características de la Primera Guerra Mundial es que por primera vez se usó a gran escala armas químicas que en forma de gas herían a las tropas enemigas. De allí lo popular que se volvieron esas máscaras que llevaban los soldados.

I am a specialist in 18th-19th Cy European history, but I once spent a summer doing research on the First World War. Here in honor of #WWI100 are some of the horrible things I learned:
First, some numbers: in #WWI an average of 900 French and 1300 German soldiers died EVERY DAY. At the end, 20,000,000 (twenty million) soldiers were disabled. 2/n
Western Front was 475 miles long, but it is estimated that 25,000 miles of trenches snaked along it. #WWI was a boon to the barbed-wire industry. Before 1914, British Army annually used 2500 shovels. During it? 2,500,000

The #WorldWar1 Armistice signing was enthusiastically celebrated in China, too - with street rallies, a military parade, and even a new commemorative gate. It might have been the "European War" 歐戰, but for many Chinese it held promise of redress for colonial invasion.

”世界大同“ Great Global Unity
