  • We learned that at least 827 people were shot by police one every 2 days.
  • We learned that on-duty police are almost never charged with crimes for firing, even though agencies pay millions to settle civil lawsuits.
  • Also, listen to Ben Montgomery on a recent Radiolab podcast about policeshootings.

Trump says he is considering veto of $1.3 trillion budget

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • President Donald Trump threw the massive spending bill into doubt Friday, saying he was considering a veto of the $1.3 trillion plan over concerns about young Dreamer immigrants and border wall money.
  • Hours before funding for the government expires, Trump said on Twitter that he was weighing a veto based on the fact that the 800,000 plus DACA recipients have been totally abandoned by the Democrats (not even mentioned in Bill) and the BORDER WALL, which is desperately needed for our National…
  • Budget director Mick Mulvaney had said the president would sign the bill and Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan said Trump was supportive.
  • Trump only reluctantly backed the bill he would have to sign, according to Republican lawmakers and aides, who acknowledged the deal involved necessary trade-offs for the Democratic votes that were needed for passage despite their majority lock on Congress.
  • In all, 90 House Republicans, including many from the conservative House Freedom Caucus, voted against the bill, as did two dozen Republicans in the Senate.
