On January 20th the presidential candidate Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States. In over a month Trump has revised policies that have affected global politics, the
environment, health, security and so much more. During the month of February we will take time talk about the rippling global effects that these policies have had on global culture, arts, humanities
and so much more. In lieu of any invited guests we open this month up to all –empyre- subscribers and encourage them to post freely.
