udents’ trust. Upon arrival, they were not only faced with the high altitude and thin
ner atmosphere, but also naughty students with a low level of basic knowledge.
Wang Qiming, a history teacher from Huai’an city, Jiangsu, said he experienced some friction when he taught his first class in 2015.
“The students knew less than those in Jiangsu. They didn’t behave well in class or listen to me, so if the situation had not been
handled carefully－if I had become impatient or irritated－the tension could have been harmful,” he said.
Wang decided to proceed slowly and adjust his schedule to match t

using his powers to hire and fire cabinet members under Article 2 would have been seen as obstruction — a standard that he alleged was “only for Trump.”
”The Attorney General recuses himself, and I don’t fire him, no obstruction,” Trump said. “That’s the other thing — if y
ou use your rights, if you use your power, if you use Article 2, it’s called obstruction, but only for Trump, f
or nobody else. So the attorney general is weak and ineffective and he doesn’t do what he should have done.”
Trump fired Sessions in November following an increasingly str
ained relationship and months of personal attacks by the President.
He also recounted Comey’s firing as being due to the former FBI direc
