Trump Tweaks Border Stance in Bid to Shift Shutdown Blame
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected the proposal on Saturday, hours before Trump outlined it in a White House speech to the nation. Trump said he would extend protections for three years for so-called Dreamers -- young people bought to the country illegally as children --and make other concessions in exchange for his demanded $5.7 billion toward a border wall. White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney mused to reporters that he is "very curious" to see how Democrats explain a "no" vote on Trump's plan under those circumstances.

‘SNL': Pete Davidson Addresses Suicide Threat - And Reviews ‘The Mule' With John Mulaney (Video)
Pete Davidson joined "Weekend Update" anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che for the "Saturday Night Live" news segment's first installment of 2019 to do two important things: 1) reassure "SNL" viewers he's OK after the cryptic suicide threat he made on social media last month and 2) give a film review with John Mulaney. "I'm great," Davidson told Jost and Che. "As you know, I've had a really crazy month and I want to talk about something that matters a lot to me." "Mental health?" Jost asked. "No, the new Clint Eastwood movie, ‘The Mule,'" Davidson replied. And there to help him open up about the 2018 drama was former "SNL" writer Mulaney, who Davidson has been hanging out with a lot recently.

"A sober, domestic life." "Yeah, and after observing John's life, I publicly threatened suicide," Davidson joked, while laughing and getting the "Update" studio audience to chuckle too. "I'm sorry, I know I shouldn't make that joke. It is funny though," he added, while laughing some more. Mulaney then turned to Davidson and said, "Pete, look at me, look me in the eye. You are loved by many and we are glad you are OK. Now back to ‘The Mule.'" Also Read: 'Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' Star Rachel Brosnahan to Host First 'SNL'

Donald Trump offers protection for 'Dreamers' in exchange for his wall in bid to end government shutdown
President Donald Trump last night offered to extend temporary deportation protections for people illegally brought to the US as children in exchange for funding for his border wall with Mexico. In a rare weekend address, Mr Trump outlined a series of proposals in the hope of ending the federal government shutdown which has left 800,000 workers furloughed or forced to work unpaid. The proposal includes legislation to allow around 700,000 immigrants who came to the US illegally as children, known as Dreamers, to keep their work permits and be protected from deportation for three years. It also extends protections for immigrants from some Latin American and African countries who currently hold temporary protected status (TPS). The president has previously shied away from offering protections for both groups - a key concern of Democrats and some moderate Republicans - fearing a backlash from the most conservative wing of his base.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 19, 2019 The president framed the proposal as "common sense with lots of compromise" as he sought to shift the pressure onto Democrats to reach a funding deal that can end the shutdown. However Mr Trump reiterated his demand for $5.7bn in funding for a border wall with Mexico - a key 2016 campaign pledge - something Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives, has previously pledged to reject.
