The News

September 14, 2017

It’s Thursday. Yesterday, congressional Democrats announced a tentative agreement with President Trump to preserve DACA in a deal that would include additional funds for border security without directly financing the proposed border wall. The Trump administration disputed some of the details in the Democrats’ announcement and the deal would need additional support from congressional Republicans.

In other news, eight died in a Florida nursing home that had been without power following Hurricane Irma; a judge revoked bail for convicted “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli for offering $5,000 for a strand of Hillary Clinton’s hair taken during her book tour; Congress opened an investigation into the security breach at Equifax; the White House press secretary called for the firing of an ESPN anchor for criticizing the president on Twitter; and the Cleveland Indians won their 21st consecutive game, breaking the modern record set by the 2002 Oakland A’s.

As per usual, good luck on the day ahead and thanks for reading the newsletter.

Cheers,
