Nonprofit Tweets of the Week – 1/13/17

The past week was marked by President Obama‘s farewell address, President-Elect Trump‘s denial and denouncement of an unsubstantiated report that said Russia had compromising information about him, Trump’s concession that Russia was probably behind the hacking related to the Presidential election, and Trump’s insistence that he will not divest his business holdings.
