President Donald Trump announced his budget request for 2021 on Monday, and people—especially Democrats—weren't exactly excited for it.

Though it's somewhat faded from the public's collective memory, the world was outraged when President Donald Trump sided with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence agencies.

The pair did so after an hours-long meeting. To this day, only they and the interpreters know what was said. The Washington Post reported earlier this year the "extraordinary lengths" taken by Trump to conceal his correspondence with Putin.
