The week in one song: Blue Öyster Cult’s ‘Hot Rails to Hell’
Where is the Trump train headed?
 
Trump wants to divert aid away from women and the environment
Trump’s aid priority is not development, but giving money to U.S. allies to keep them happy.
 
Low turnout in last week’s Algerian elections is a major blow to the government
Turnout was 10 to 15 points lower than expected.
