As the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump has become one of the most controversial presidents of our times. However, there have been other presidents that struggled during their presidency. Today, Trump moved into the White House in January 2017 and his wife came a few months later with his youngest son. Success can only be measured by the goals that have been accomplished.

Plus, these goals must be determined to be goals that are needed. The interpretation of the goals is determined by each individual. Some people appreciate the goals Trump has set and others do not. Some goals have been accomplished like interacting with North Korea and attacking Syria. However, if you want the goal to be safety and security, then maybe these goals did not accomplish what you had hoped they would.

Even though German’s population was once striving during and after World War II, it seemed over the last few decades that the population has been declining. The main cause of this is due to fewer and fewer Germans having babies. Some of them may have moved out of the country for work or to retire or live in another country.

Now, things have changed as a result of a few actions. One action that has changed the population trends of Germany is due to the birth rates. Now, Germany has higher birth rates than it did in the past. Also, another action that caused the population in Germany to increase was recently when the country opted to accept immigrants and refugees from war-torn countries.

Rohingya Muslims are an ethnic group. Most of them are Muslim. Unfortunately, the treatment of these people have gone as far back to the early 1980s. Even though they have lived in Myanmar for many years, they are not considered to be citizens of this country. Their ethnic group is not recognized as being part of the ethnic groups in Myanmar. There are over one million Rohingya Muslims living in Myanmar today.

Their livelihood is very poor and they can’t leave the country without permission. The Myanmar government exiled Rohingya Muslims from their country. It all started in October 2016 when several police were killed in the villages where these Muslims lived. Retaliation ensued where troops raped, committed arson and killed many Muslims.

In order to determine which country will be the next economic superpower, it may be difficult to tell and have proof to support it. No one can look into the future and determine which countries will not only rise to power, but also rise past the existing countries that have strong economies. One way to tell is to look at the past. These countries that have gained strong economies for a substantial number of years in the past may predict the future, in a sense.

Today, the economies are determined by strength based on the amount of money gained based on their gross domestic product. These are the goods and services sold from the country. When ranking these countries based on their GDP, the top countries include United States, China, Japan, Germany, United Kingdom, and France.

Bashar Hafez al-Assad is the president of Syria. He has been the president of Syria for about 17 years. He rules the military of Syria as the commander-in-chief. He was elected with seven more years to serve. However, Syria is a country that has been at war for several years. Its violence towards its own citizens can be seen on news reports.

In 2011, the civil war in Syria began due to some of the citizens getting together and protesting against the government. These mass protests were done because many people were against the decisions that were made revolving around politics and their civil rights. The Syrian citizens do not seem to be backing down from their civil war. Therefore, it does not seem that Assad will step down as president any time soon.

The term impeachment refers to the charge that are allowed to be brought on by officials who hold office in order to remove them from office. There are certain requirements that must be met in order to impeach an official from his or her office. Some presidents in the United States have had impeachment charges brought against them, but the impeachment process never took place.

For Bill Clinton and Andrew Jackson the impeachment passed one side of Congress but not the other. When Richard Nixon lied, he resigned from presidency before the impeachment process could even begin. The president may be impeached if he has committed treason, accepted or given bribes as well as commit high crimes or misdemeanors. Both sides of Congress vote on the impeachment.

Angela Merkel is the leader of Germany. She has been the leader of Germany since 2005. She actually became the first female Chancellor of Germany in all of its history. In 2013, Merkel went into the election and won immensely over the other candidates. However, during the 2017 election, she did not have as many votes as she did in the prior election.

Changes were made during 2015. As more and more immigrants were arriving in Europe, Germany and Merkel decided to allow refugees and immigrants to come to Germany where they would be safe. She accepted immigrants from African nations and the refugees specifically from Syria in order to flee their civil war. She also stopped the regulation of those refugees or immigrants who were seeking asylum.

At almost all times, it seems that the world is about to enact World War III. Many countries are coming together to form sides and are angered at other sides. However, there has not been a world war for over 60 years. That doesn’t mean that there won’t be. The War of terrorism seemed to be the closest to having another world war.

It seems that if there is going to be another world war, more countries are going to have to get together. Instead of just being friends with each other, they must be showing force against the other side that they oppose. Terrorism is a problem that many countries are facing, but it seems that these countries do not agree in how things should be done.
