House Dems to challenge Trump emergency declaration on Friday
House Democrats are planning to file a resolution Friday to block President Trump's emergency declaration to secure more funding for his southern border wall, although the proposal faces questionable odds in the Senate and the virtually certain prospect of a fatal White House veto that would be nearly impossible for Congress to overcome.

A North Korean Defector Shows How Kim Makes a Chump of Trump
Photo Illustration by The Daily BeastSEOUL—There is no way North Korea is going to give up its nukes, says Pyongyang's most prominent defector. And if President Donald Trump doesn't watch out, Thae Yong Ho predicts, he will slip into the quicksand of a deal that will lead "inevitably" to withdrawal of America's 28,500 troops from South Korea.

In a meeting with foreign correspondents here, Thae outlined the dangers facing U.S. policy with the emergence of what he called "the Trump doctrine." It bears a distinct resemblance, he said, to the "Nixon doctrine" that led the U.S. to pull its troops from South Vietnam and finally opened the way for North Vietnamese forces to overrun Saigon nearly half a century ago.

The fact that Trump will be sitting down with Kim Jong Un next week in Hanoi, capital of the Vietnamese regime that destroyed South Vietnamese forces in April 1975, deepened the scary image of looming disaster.

Trump Admin's Secretive Talks to Sell Saudi Arabia Nuclear Technology Spark New Fear of Arms Race
House Democrats are accusing the Trump administration of moving toward transferring highly sensitive nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia in potential violation of U.S. law. Critics say the deal could endanger national security while enriching close allies of President Trump. Saudi Arabia is considering building as many as 16 nuclear power plants by 2030, but many critics fear the kingdom could use the technology to develop nuclear weapons and trigger a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. We speak with Democratic Congressmember Ro Khanna of California and Isaac Arnsdorf, a reporter with ProPublica. Arnsdorf first wrote about the intense and secretive lobbying effort to give nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia in 2017. His reporting was cited in the House report.
