350 Newspapers against one president?
Around 350 news organizations across the U.S. are standing up to Donald Trump. Many people throughout the press are saying that this is not anti-Trump, it is pro-press.
AirFrance new leader may not be French.

CNN – “Local media reports suggest Smith could be named CEO following a meeting of the Air France-KLM (AFLYY) board on Thursday. The French state owns 14.3% of the airline group, and its economy minister publicly backed Smith earlier in the day.

Representatives for Air France-KLM declined to comment. Air France has not had a foreign CEO in its 85-year history.

The controversy follows the shock resignation of former CEO Jean-Marc Janaillac in May after unions staged strikes that cost the airline group more than €300 million ($342 million). Shares in the company have dropped by a third since January.”
