Washington D.C , United States of America China is engaged in large-scale theft of American research and technology from universities, using spies, students, and researchers as collectors, experts told Congress on Wednesday.

INTERNATIONAL, REST OF THE WORLD
At Kmaupdates, we are retweeting some of Donald Trump's tweets that are making headlines 1) Our relationship with Russia is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War.
