"An explosive U.N. report shows America’s safety net was failing before Trump’s election" - Washington Post. 6/6/2018.

Luke Shaefer comments on a new United Nations report on "extreme poverty and human rights" in the US, says the US is failing its poorest citizens with a lack of political will to change government systems. The report asserts: "particularly in a rich country like the United States, the persistence of extreme poverty is a political choice made by those in power."
