The wife of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe — who will soon be 93 — says that he should still run for president even if he dies before the next election
"If God decides to take him, then we would rather field him as a corpse," Grace Mugabe, 51, said during a recent rally. She said that Mugabe, who has been in power since 1980, should run for president as a dead man to "prove that people love him." Mugabe has said that he wants to live to 100 and plans to rule for life. His wife apparently has bigger plans. In 2016, Grace Mugabe told supporters that her husband will be their leader ever after he's "in the grave."

A large number of non-citizen Hispanics, as many as 2 million, were illegally registered to vote in the United States, according to a nationwide poll
The National Hispanic Survey provides additional evidence for use by anti-voter fraud conservatives and bolsters an analysis by professors at Old Dominion University who say that non-citizens registered and voted in potentially large numbers. President Trump has announced that he will appoint a task force on voter fraud headed by Vice President Mike Pence. He says that he wants the investigation to focus on inaccurate voter registration rolls, which are maintained by the states and the District of Columbia. “It is a fact and you will not deny it, that there are massive numbers of non-citizens in this country who are registered to vote,” White House adviser Stephen Miller said. “That is a scandal. We should stop the presses.”

According to a new study from public policy organization Demos, two-parent black households had approximately $16,000 in median wealth in 2013, while two-parent Latino households had $18,800 in wealth. Those numbers are trumped, however, by the median wealth of a single-parent white household: $35,800. That means that a white single parent still has 2.2 times more wealth than a two-parent black household and 1.9 times more wealth than a two-parent Latino family. The amount of wealth for a median two-parent white family is much higher than all of these at $161,300.
