  • The president name came up more often than any other in Oxford's analysis of 1.3 lakh children's stories submitted for BBC Radio 2's annual story-writing contest - '500 Words.'

    Creativity
  • The fact that US President Donald Trump's name came up more than any other suggests how he has entered children's minds and imagination.
