Why do people dislike Hillary Clinton? Long story….

There is – and perhaps there always will be – a dedicated group of people who don’t know Hillary Clinton personally, but nonetheless hate her.

Serbia has announced that it will start joint army and police patrols on its borders with Bulgaria and Macedonia to curb the illegal entry of migrants and people smuggling.
