Opinion: Don't blame George W. Bush for the GOP's authoritarianism. It's Trump's fault
Historians will struggle for centuries to make sense of what were quite possibly the four most bizarre years in U.S. history to date: the Trump presidency. Was President Donald Trump sui generis? Or was he merely the product of forces that had been gathering in the Republican Party for years? The correct answer, I believe, is some of both.

China's Xinjiang region has evolved over the past two decades into a major production hub for many of the companies that supply the world with parts needed to build solar panels.
