    Schumer, Pelosi, Trump 'agree' to fix DACA, disagree on the details
    By Sophie Tatum
    Updated 11:27 PM ET, Wed September 13, 2017

    VIDEO

    Washington (CNN)Democratic leaders Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi said following a Wednesday night meeting with President Donald Trump that they have "agreed" to a fix on DACA and resolved to iron out a border-security plan -- "excluding" the US-Mexico border wall that was one of Trump's most memorable campaign promises.

    In a statement following their White House dinner, Schumer and Pelosi said the parties had "agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that's acceptable to both sides." The bipartisan DREAM Act would be part of the arrangement, a person briefed on the meeting said.

    Senate rejects bipartisan push for new US war authorization
    By RICHARD LARDNER
    Associated Press

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Senate on Wednesday rejected a bipartisan push for a new war authorization against the Islamic State and other terrorist groups, electing to let the White House rely on a 16-year-old law passed after the Sept. 11 attacks as the legal basis to send U.S. troops into combat.

    Senators voted 61-36 scuttle an amendment to the annual defense policy bill by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., that would have allowed war authorizations, created in the wake of al-Qaida's 9/11 strikes, to lapse after six months. Paul, a leader of the GOP's noninterventionist wing, said Congress would use the time to debate an updated war authority for operations in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and elsewhere before the old ones expired.

    House backs $1.2T spending bill with more money for military
    By ANDREW TAYLOR
    Associated Press

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Republican-led House on Thursday passed a sweeping $1.2 trillion spending bill that provides billions more dollars for the military while sparing medical research and popular community development programs from deep cuts sought by President Donald Trump.

    British PM May Rebukes Trump Over Tweet on London Subway Attack
    by Alastair Jamieson

    VIDEO

    LONDON — Britain’s prime minister rebuked President Donald Trump on Friday after he tweeted that "a loser terrorist" responsible for a subway train detonation had been "in the sights" of London’s Metropolitan Police.

    Asked whether Trump knew something the British public did not, Prime Minister Theresa May said, "I never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation."

    May's former chief of staff, Nick Timothy, went further, describing Trump's comment as "so unhelpful from leader of our ally and intelligence partner.”

    For Trump and his team, a ‘time to be serious’ at United Nations debut

    VIDEO

    NEW YORK — President Trump’s first address to the United Nations, the world body he once said risked becoming an irrelevant salon, will be a test of his “America First” agenda on global engagement, climate change and North Korea, but one topic — Iran — looms largest.

    Trump’s speech on Tuesday, and a series of meetings he will hold next week with foreign leaders gathering here at the annual U.N. General Assembly, are freighted with expectations that the U.S. leader wants to pull away from the 2015 U.N.-backed nuclear deal with Iran.

    Trump Goes on Wide-Ranging Sunday Morning Tweet Storm, RTs Assault on Hillary Clinton
    by Max Burman

    President Donald Trump began his Sunday morning on Twitter, raising eyebrows with a series of posts and retweets on subjects ranging from North Korea to Hillary Clinton.

    The president was in a seemingly playful mood as he conveyed to the world that he had spoken with South Korean President Moon Jae In and "asked him how Rocket Man is doing," presumably referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

    But many online were less amused when Trump retweeted a gif that had been edited to show him swinging a golf club and hitting a ball that then knocks over his former opponent Hillary Clinton in the next frame.

    Trump’s divisive presidency reshapes a key part of his private business
    By David A. Fahrenthold, Amy Brittain and Matea Gold

    September 17 at 3:39 PM

    CHART

    Trump-owned hotels and clubs have long made money by holding galas and other special events. Now, their clientele is changing. Trump’s properties are attracting new customers who want something from him or his government.

    But they’re losing the kind of customers the business was originally built on: nonpolitical groups who just wanted to rent a room.

    Forget Trump. The U.S. Storms Ahead on Climate Change Like Never Before
    By Adam Edelman

    VIDEO

    Months after President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Paris climate accord, states and cities are offering their own forecast for reducing global warming: We got this.

    While leaders outside Washington have been implementing measures for decades when it comes to combating carbon emissions and promoting green energy, the Trump administration’s rolling back of federal environmental protections has spurred localities around the country to step up in what experts say is an unprecedented effort.

    Since Trump took office, there's been a downpour of legislation, amendments and resolutions aimed at curbing carbon emissions that are in line with key tenets of the Paris climate pact, the landmark
    global coalition meant to curb emissions that cause climate change.

    Trump pushes reform in United Nations debut, calls for ‘changing business as usual
    David Nakamura
    September 18 at 11:51 AM

    VIDEO

    NEW YORK — President Trump called on the United Nations to enact reforms to the world body, pledging Monday in his debut here at the annual General Assembly meetings that he and his administration will be “partners in your work.”

    Speaking at the opening session of the four-day conference, Trump said the organization founded in 1945 has “not reached its full potential” in recent years because of a bloated bureaucracy and “mismanagement.”

    GOP eyes popular tax breaks to finance overhaul
    By MARCY GORDON
    AP Business Writer
    Sep 18, 3:02 PM EDT

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republicans straining to find about $1 trillion to finance sweeping tax cuts are homing in on two popular deductions that are woven into the nation's fiscal fabric - the mortgage interest deduction that millions of homeowners prize and the deduction for state and local taxes popular in Democratic strongholds.

    About 30 million Americans, or about 20 percent of taxpayers, deduct mortgage interest from their income taxes, a deduction Realtors and homebuilders argue is a catalyst to home ownership in the United States. According to the most recent IRS tally, nearly 44 million people claim the deduction for state and local taxes in 2014, especially in the high-tax, high-income states of California, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

    Hillary Clinton just floated the possibility of contesting the 2016 election
    Analysis by Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large
    Updated 4:08 PM ET, Mon September 18, 2017

    VIDEO

    CNN)In interviews over the last week surrounding the release of her 2016 memoir "What Happened," Hillary Clinton has been hugely critical of President Donald Trump. She's suggested he is a misogynist and said repeatedly that she fears for the country with Trump in charge.

    But in an interview Monday with NPR's Terry Gross, Clinton raised that critique up a notch -- not only questioning the legitimacy of Trump's presidency but refusing to rule out the possibility of contesting the results if Russian collusion is proven by special counsel Bob Mueller.

    Here's the full text of the back-and-forth, courtesy of CNN's Dan Merica:

    Category 5 Hurricane Maria Powers Up for Another Blow to the Caribbean
    by Alex Johnson

    VIDEO

    Maria blew up from a tropical storm into a major Category 5 hurricane in barely more than a day, bearing down on Puerto Rico and other Caribbean islands that are still bailing out from Hurricane Irma.

    Maria made landfall on Dominica, an island of 72,000 people in the Lesser Antilles, at 9:15 p.m. ET, the National Hurricane Center said. The island's prime minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, wrote on Facebook that his roof was gone, that his home was flooded and that he was "at the complete mercy of the hurricane." A few minutes later, he reported that he had been rescued.

    In U.N. speech, Trump threatens to ‘totally destroy North Korea’ and calls Kim Jong Un ‘Rocket Man’
    By David Nakamura and Anne Gearan September 19 at 3:00 PM

    VIDEO

    NEW YORK — President Trump warned the United Nations in a speech Tuesday that the world faces “great peril” from rogue regimes with powerful weapons and terrorists with expanding reach across the globe, and called on fellow leaders to join the United States in the fight to defeat what he called failed or murderous ideologies and “loser terrorists.”

    “We meet at a time of immense promise and great peril,” Trump said in his maiden address to more than 150 international delegations at the annual U.N. General Assembly. “It is up to us whether we will lift the world to new heights or let it fall into a valley of disrepair.”

    The president's address was highly anticipated around the world for signs of how his administration would engage with the United Nations after he had criticized the organization during his campaign as being bloated and ineffective, and threatened to slash U.S. funding.
