Today, we issued an updated version of the test, including more questions that will test applicants’ understanding of U.S history & civics. The number of test questions will be 20, with a minimum of 12 questions that must be answered correctly.

How Much More Damage Can the #Trump Administration Do?

Joe Biden has won the popular vote and the majority of the electoral college vote. Whether he will be sworn in as the 46th President of the United States, however, remains to be seen.

Can it make changes that outlast the Trump Presidency and are difficult for Mr. Biden to reverse? http://www.asylumist.com/2020/11/11/how-much-more-damage-can-the-trump-administration-do/
