During Trump’s 100-day rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, one spectator caused a bit of a stir. That person threw dozens of Russian flags into the air as Trump began his speech.

Trump’s rally coincides with not only his 100th day in office, but the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington, D.C., to which Trump announced he would not attend back in February. Many believe that his decision not to attend stems from the fact that he could not bear to witness being criticized by the press.
I will not be attending the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!

Trump’s close ties to Russia have dominated his presidency. His campaign is currently under FBI investigation for possibly colluding with the Russians to influence the outcome of the 2016 election. Several Trump aides, cabinet members, and surrogates have already had their Russian ties exposed.
While Trump may cast off his connection with the Kremlin as “fake news,” the active FBI investigation says otherwise. The majority of Americans already believe that Russia tried to influence our election; it is only a matter of time before the truth is revealed. Trump can try to distract America with everything from rallies to Twitter rants, but the beleaguered President will soon be exposed for his illegal and decidedly un-American activities.
