1. Democrats reject Trump’s latest shutdown offer
On Saturday, President Donald Trump addressed the nation and laid out a proposal to end the government shutdown, including temporary protections for DACA recipients so long as he still gets $5.7 billion to build a border wall.
The president on Sunday attacked Pelosi in a tweetstorm that included the following: “Nancy Pelosi has behaved so irrationally & has gone so far to the left that she has now officially become a Radical Democrat. She is so petrified of the ‘lefties’ in her party that she has lost control.”
ABC News Political Director Rick Klein says Democrats will be forced to respond to the specifics of the proposal after weeks of non-negotiations.
The student, who attends an all-male Catholic school in Kentucky, was part of a group attending the annual March for Life. The Native American man he encountered was with a group participating in the Indigenous People’s March. The Indigenous Peoples Movement said the incident showed a fundamental lack of respect.
In a statement late Sunday, the teen, Nick Sandmann, a junior at Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, disputed some of the claims by Nathan Phillips, the drum-playing Vietnam veteran who said he heard chants from Sandmann’s group about building a wall.
“I realized everyone had cameras and that perhaps a group of adults was trying to provoke a group of teenagers into a larger conflict,” Sandmann said. “I said a silent prayer that the situation would not get out of hand.”

The proposal faces resistance in Greece because of what critics see as the implied claims to Greek land and cultural heritage.
