Senate Dems introduce bill to block Trump from using military funds to build wall Senate Democrats introduced legislation on Monday to prevent President Trump from using military and disaster relief funds to construct the U.S.-Mexico border wall should he declare a national emergency. 

From the swooping, Hitchcockian strings on the soundtrack to the repeated slow zooms, everything here gets a little half-turn of bombast to goose the tone and liven up the mood. This is never clearer than when Shea Whigham’s Thomas is deciding whether to close out his study of Walter Cruz—while

Highly respected Senator Richard Burr, Chairman of Senate Intelligence, said today that, after an almost two year investigation, he saw no evidence of Russia collusion. “We don’t have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia.”

It's unclear what prompted Trump's tweet, though multiple Democrats over the weekend made clear their presidential aspirations for 2020, and called out the president in the process.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) officially entered the 2020 campaign on Saturday, and called Trump a "symptom of what's gone wrong in America."

Dems groan as Trump mentions migrant caravans in State of the Union

Dems groan as Trump mentions migrant caravans in State of the Union Congressional Democrats audibly groaned as President Trump pivoted during his State of the Union speech to talk about migrant caravans heading toward the United States. 

Dear Mr. Trump can I call you Mr. Trump ? Is that ok? I want you to be happy, that's very important to me. Before I get started, let me say this letter isn't from all women. We see right through you. We have all known you at some point. Your ways are not unfamiliar to us.

President Donald Trump delivered his first official State of the Union address in the nation's capital Delivered reasonably well & some very touching moments, plus a few unnecessary Trumpisms.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) declared her candidacy from snowy Minneapolis on Sunday. Though she did not explicitly mention Trump, she took a few veiled shots at the president. She pledged to press a number of pro-environment initiatives if elected, and vowed not to conduct "foreign policy by tweet."

After Trump tweeted that Klobuchar "looked like a Snowman" during her announcement, the senator responded by asking how Trump's hair "would fare in a blizzard?"

The president targeted Democrats repeatedly on Twitter over the last few days, chiding Warren's campaign, mocking the Green New Deal proposal backed by some party members and criticizing the party for its stance in ongoing border security funding negotiations.

Trump is set to hold his first campaign rally on Monday since last year's midterm elections. He will travel to El Paso, Texas, to speak near the border as he continues his push for a border wall.

Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas), who is mulling a 2020 bid, will hold a counter-rally at the same time.
