The president has hired/nominated an impressive number of women to senior positions in his administration, including the first female director of the CIA, Gina Haspel.

The package includes a salary boost for service members, about a 2.6 percent raise—the biggest military pay raise in nearly a decade.
Numbers don’t lie, so in the name of a free and fair press, we implore all journalists to start sharing them—instead of their own personal biases.
