TRUMP SIGNALS SUPPORT FOR BORDER SECURITY DEAL AFTER MEETING WITH SEN. SHELBY: President Trump appeared to be moving Tuesday toward approving a border security compromise after speaking with the top Republican on the Senate Appropriations Committee … The president tweeted that he had been “presented the concept and parameters” of the agreement by “hard-working” Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala.
During a Cabinet meeting earlier Tuesday, Trump said that he was “not happy” with the tentative deal, but did not say whether he would enact the measure and insisted that the administration was “using methods” to construct his long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The president also wants to avert another government shutdown, despite expressing displeasure at what was agreed to by lawmakers Monday night. A committee negotiating new border security measures tentatively agreed to dedicate $1.4 billion to Trump’s border wall, far less than his $5.7 billion goal. The emerging deal drops Democratic demands to seriously limit detentions of immigrants illegally in the U.S.

TRUMP THANKS MSNBC AFTER REPORT SENATE PANEL FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF RUSSIA COLLUSION: President Trump expressed gratitude to MSNBC for its report… Tuesday morning that, according to unnamed sources, the Senate Intelligence Committee concluded that there is no direct evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election. The committee conducted 200 interviews over the course of two years.
CHELSEA CLINTON DEFENDS OMAR, SAYS TRUMP NEVER SAID SORRY FOR ‘WHITE NATIONALISM’ EMBRACE: Chelsea Clinton on Tuesday called out Vice President Mike Pence for saying that Rep. Ilhan Omar’s apology for earlier Twitter posts called anti-Semitic was “inadequate,” and blasted President Trump for peddling hate … Clinton, who was critical of Omar’s tweets, posting that “we should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism,” but said on Tuesday that Trump is a “far more powerful person” and has never apologized “for his embrace of white nationalism & anti-Semitic & Islamophobic hate.”
Omar said she had no intention of offending anyone, including Jewish Americans, when she insinuated that lobbyists were paying lawmakers to support Israel. Trump called her apology “lame” and said she should resign from Congress or at least not be allowed to serve on committees.
WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB DOG SHOW NAMES WIRE FOX TERRIER AS BEST IN SHOW: A wire fox terrier from Brazil named King was announced Tuesday as the winner of the 143rd Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Garden in New York City … Wire fox terriers have won 15 times at the nation’s most prestigious dog show — far more than any other breed. There were some boos — along with modest cheers — when judge Peter Green pointed at the 7-year-old King. Bono the Havanese came in second among the more than 2,800 dogs that competed.
Contenders in the final ring were Bean, a popular Sussex spaniel that has won the sporting group two years in a row; Burns a crowd-pleasing longhaired dachshund; Wilma, a boxer; and Baby Lars, a bouviers des Flandres.
There is no prize money for the win, just a shiny silver bowl. Other rewards come in the forms of lucrative breeding rights and a lifetime of bragging rights.
DEMOCRATIC 2020 PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDER AMY KLOBUCHAR ON WHETHER SHE IS “PROGRESSIVE ENOUGH” TO WIN THE NOMINATION – “…What I also really believe in is that we need to stop governing from chaos and move to opportunity. And these are views and values not just consistent with my party, but also with America. I think that we need to do better in terms of making our economy work better for everyone. I think we need to pass comprehensive immigration reform, and I look at this as not just a moral issue, I actually look at it as an economic issue…” – Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., on Special Report with Bret Baier, talks about joining the crowded Democratic field for 2020. WATCH
