President Trump's Approval Rating
School Bans Kids From Playing Tag
California's Gold Ridge Elementary School has banned various recess games such as tag and touch football.
Some students agree with the ban because children were "playing too rough" while others felt it was unfair.
Many parents feel the ban is unnecessary.
The school has stated that punishment for engaging in these activities are:
Warning and walk with yard supervisors
Referral to the principal's office and removal from the yard for a day
A "parent teacher conference"
Russia and Trump Links
On Monday, FBI Director, James Comey, publicly announced that the FBI is investigating any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. (Since July)
