To be perfectly honest, the political saber-rattling these days has gotten a bit old.
It seems every day we're hearing news of another country threatening the United States with sanctions, tariffs, or just vague retaliation for comments from the White House.
And in response, the Twitter audience receives constant entertainment in the form of retaliatory rejoinders from our commander in chief.
But despite the relationship drama between the world's most powerful nations, it's still important to know what's going on.
If only to be properly prepared.
