     When Trump is looking at countries to mock maybe he should look closer to home.  This might explain why more people from Norway are not emigrating to the United States.

There is no way that 1/3 of children in the US are living in poverty. I'd be curious to know how they define "poverty".

I have seen other estimates of childhood poverty in the US and the percentage bounces around from 15 to 40 percent. I just it depends on different calculations. However the realty is still that of the major Western countries we still have the highest rate by any comparative measure. For a county as rich as the US to have this realty speaks sense morality and values. Trickle down economics is morally unjust in my opinion.
