Trump, and the ChuckAndNancy Show At a bipartisan Oval Office meeting yesterday, President Trump stunned fellow Republicans by making a debt-limit deal with the Democrats. This morning, he followed up with a tweet about DACA . Conservative Republicans are furious, but House Speaker Paul Ryan says the president wanted a moment of bipartisanship with another storm approaching. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi described yesterday’s event as "a long meeting," and praised Senate minority leader, Democratic Chuck Schumer, for "speak[ing] New York to the president." Josh Dawsey, White House reporter for Politico , has more on this productive instance of bipartisanship.

Josh Dawsey, White House reporter for Politico , says no matter the theme of the rally, Trump seems to turn it into a venting session about everything that bothers him.

Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
