It was Wednesday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on April 26, 2017). The US president was Donald John Trump (Republican). In that special week of April people in US were listening to Shape Of You by Ed Sheeran. Alien: Covenant, directed by Ridley Scott, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2017 while Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Dear White People. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
