Washington, March 15, 2017:  Dozens of Presidential encyclopedias in the United States aimed at children have now been updated with a new section on Donald Trump.

Several of these books are now available for purchase in the US.

Scholastic’s Rookie Biographies series, which targets first and second-graders, has already introduced Trump in its latest edition.

“Meet Donald Trump. Donald Trump is a famous entrepreneur. He is also a television personality. In 2015, Trump surprised many people when he decided to run for president. In November 2016, he won the election. Donald Trump became the 45th president of the United States,” reads the chapter on Trump.

Another noteworthy title out for purchase is “President Donald Trump” by author Joanne Mattern.

NewsGram brings to you top news around the world today.

In a chapter on his presidential run, Mattern writes: “On June 16, 2016, Trump announced he was running for president. He was an unusual choice because he had no experience in politics… Trump ran against Hillary Clinton. She had a lot more experience in politics… The race was close, but Trump won. Many people were happy”.

While these accounts present short biographical sketches of Trump, they almost fail to capture the outrage and protests that Trump continues to face.

“Donald Trump inspired his supporters to try something new. He promised them a better future. Millions of Americans are counting on him to help improve their lives,” adds Mattern.

US President Donald Trump has left people astonished with his knowledge of space and the universe and has become a laughing stock yet again after he claimed that the moon is a part of Mars.

In a tweet on Friday, he said: “For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon – We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defence and Science.”

Trump’s remarks came a day after NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine told USA Today that US astronauts would not be able to make a lunar landing by 2024 unless Trump administration’s $1.6 billion budget increase request is not approved by the US Congress.

As soon as Trump tweeted, people from around the world started trolling him with witty one-liners, jokes and memes.

“Sigh! His dad must have paid his way through astronomy class too!” wrote American long-distance runner Ryan Hill.

“Trump’s knowledge on this matter is one small step for man, one giant leap backwards for mankind,” said Emmy-nominated filmmaker Jeremy Newberger.

“Based on the President’s track record here on Earth, I don’t think NASA needs his input on how to handle space,” tweeted Sam Vinograd, national security analyst at CNN.

Earlier in May, Trump, who is infamous for making controversial statements, war threats and spelling errors on his Twitter handle, confessed that he uses Twitter as a “typewriter”.

Later, Twitter Co-founder, Ev Williams called Trump “master” of the platform, arguing the potential negative effects of the President’s tweets on the country’s political discourse are “trivial compared to the effect of the broader media”.

Mars has two moons – Phobos and Deimos – however, the Moon which orbits the Earth is not a part of the Red Planet. (IANS)
