Trump and Elephants – level 1
Some Americans visit Africa. They kill animals there. After they kill an elephant, they want to bring a piece of it home. They call this a trophy. It is a part of the dead animal.
This is not legal when Obama is president. Trump is the president of the USA now. He makes this legal. His government says that this can make money. The money can help protect elephants.
Some people agree with this. Some do not.
There is a revolution in Zimbabwe. One critic says that it is hard to control hunting during a revolution.
Difficult words: legal (you can do thing which are legal), government (the leaders of a country), agree (if you agree with something, you think that it is good), revolution (when people are fighting their own government).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
