The deal President Trump struck with the two Democrats over the objection of the majority leaders in his own party has at least temporarily upended the balance of power in Washington, emboldening Democrats who now see space to work with Trump on immigration and spending.

It’s a dramatic shift from Trump’s first seven months in office, when the president worked almost exclusively with Republicans and Democrats were largely an afterthought.

  • President Trump's debt deal with the Democrats lets the already cowardly GOP leaders off the hook.
  • Trump is making sure his response to the hurricanes and the speed of government aid cannot be criticized, as it has with past presidents.
  • The debt is already out of control, and this isn't likely going to be the time or the team of leaders to fix that.
  • A darkening broader political landscape.
  • Rising deficit pressures.
  • Rising discord within the GOP.
  • Mueller seeks interviews with WH staff over Trump Tower meeting statement (CNN) Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team has approached the White House about interviewing staffers who were aboard Air Force One when the initial misleading statement about Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower was crafted, three sources familiar with the conversations said. The special counsel's discussions with the White House are the latest indication that Mueller's investigators are interested in the response to the Trump Tower meeting. Mueller wants to know how the statement aboard Air Force One was put together, whether information was intentionally left out and who was involved, two of the sources said.
  • Blumenthal: Trump Jr. testimony had ‘gaping holes’ (The Hill) Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said that Donald Trump Jr.'s interview with a Senate panel Thursday had "gaping holes" and the president's son should return to testify under oath on his involvement with Russia during the 2016 election. Blumenthal told MSNBC's Chris Matthews about his Senate Judiciary Committee testimony:

"[Donald Trump Jr.] left more questions unanswered than he answered. There were gaping holes in the information he provided, which is why we need to have him come back in public under oath in a hearing of the Judiciary Committee."



  • State-run Chinese newspaper chides Trump for ending program that gives children of illegal immigrants a path to stay in the country
  • Comments on microblog Weibo show Trump's presidency is a hot topic in China



  • Massive 8.1 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Southern Mexico (Bloomberg) The quake was so strong that it caused buildings to sway violently in Mexico's capital more than 1,000 kilometers (650 miles) away. Residents fled buildings, often in their pajamas, and gathered in frightened groups in the street. Some neighborhoods remained in darkness after electricity was knocked out. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake struck at 11:49 p.m. Thursday local time and its epicenter was 165 kilometers (102 miles) west of Tapachula in Chiapas not far from Guatemala. It had a depth of 35 kilometers (22 miles).
