We've talked about Trump before in News Review. This is when some of his Tweets were branded 'racist' https://youtu.be/Nf2nuM9VD_E

Beware, paid traitors for Trump and Patriots for Putin in the comments section.
Thank you, BBC Learning English
This is such a great news review video. The topic is timely and the etymologies are well-explained. Now, the words that will be used on the headlines of our channel would not be sputtering! Thank you.
Great video, but it would be super with subtitles, and I wouldn't miss any word. Also I'd like a brief etymology of each new key word. That's an interesting information that helps me to uderstand and memorize words.
Lets talk about the truth: – The Democrats in Congress abused their power because President Trump has not committed any crimes, it was not bipartisan as only Democrats voted to impeach, corrupt Democrats REFUSED President Trump to have ANY witnesses, corrupt Democrats REFUSED President Trump to any attorneys at the hearing, corrupt Democrat REFUSES to release the testimony taken in the sciff, WHY?
In the past the Senate only recalls witnesses that were heard in Congress not new, Congress should have proof of any crimes committed which they had not as NO CRIMES were committed.
Once again propaganda machine Bias Broadcasting Corporation failed to tell the truth. 0/10 for trying.
I request America all Christian country Muslim country you are seeing what is happening in India we are fade up by this government we won't Congress government in India we all are with you
The explanation of sputter was amazing
I watch the BBC as I want to be able to understand the British accent but I believe Catherine's is not a British one sooo not interested anymore! Where's she from!!!!
