President Trump will support a sweeping budget and border compromise and declare a national emergency at the same time, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Thursday.

I’m sure I and/or other FPers will be posting more as events advance. I can say for my part I’ve never feared more for our polity.
