President Donald Trump reacts during a campaign rally in Battle Creek, Michigan, December 18, 2019. At the raucous rally for his re-election, as the House of Representatives voted to impeach him, Trump said the impeachment would be a "mark of shame" for Democrats and Pelosi, and cost them in the 2020 election. "This lawless, partisan impeachment is a political suicide march for the Democrat Party," Trump said. "They're the ones who should be impeached, every one of them." REUTERS/Leah Millis

Gregoria Hernandez, 23, sits next to her 7-month-old daughter Sonia, who according to her has diarrhea and is underweight, while resting on a bed in Barquisimeto, Venezuela. "I feel like the worst of mothers, because I don't have a way to help them, to give them what they need, the food they need," said Hernandez. Venezuela's economic crisis is taking a crippling toll on the country's children, who face a growing risk of malnutrition as basic food is increasingly out of reach for many families. The public health system, notoriously short of medicine and other standard supplies, is unable to provide much succor, and aid groups struggle to bridge the gap. Picture taken August 16, 2019.
