    What I don't understand is why the universities investigate on-campus sexual assault at all. Why aren't the police doing this?

    If I were assaulted, I would not want inexperienced people who have...

    I don't think Trump feels the US has any allies. To him, we have enemies, and countries which have not yet been proven to be enemies.

    He is not a diplomat. His need to always win, plus his need...
