Healthy Changes In The Council Of Ministers

Healthy Changes In The Council Of Ministers

The new ministers who have just been appointed were consulted with me, even though there is no rule saying that the people doing the proposing should do so since I gave up the prerogatives of power a while ago. They acted simply like genuine revolutionaries who bear their loyalty to principles.

Deciphering The Thoughts Of The New President Of The United States

Deciphering The Thoughts Of The New President Of The United States
