RIVERCESS COUNTY, Liberia — He’s a 2-year-old boy named Sunday Dahn, lying in a coma in a rural health center with cerebral malaria. Even if Sunday survives, he may suffer permanent brain damage.
In Washington, we’ll see debates about President Trump’s proposal to slash humanitarian aid, and politicians will emerge as winners or losers depending on the outcome. But the real winners and losers are kids like Sunday.
As it turns out the aid budget that Trump wants to cut has absolutely nothing at all to do with malaria in Liberia.
But, you know, got to have a dying kid to wave about, right Nicholas?
