LAWMAKERS REACH DEAL ON SPENDING BILL, BUT BORDER WALL FUNDING NOT INCLUDED
Republican and Democratic lawmakers forged a $1.07 trillion spending package that would fund the government through the end of September, but does not include some of President Trump’s cornerstone promises including funding for a border wall or funding cuts to sanctuary cities. Though funding for the wall is not included, the package sets aside $1.5 billion for border security measures such as additional detention beds. It does give Trump a $12.5 billion down payment on his request to strengthen the military, a figure which could rise to $15 billion should Trump present Congress with a plan for fighting the Islamic State terror group. The proposed $15 billion amounts to half of Trump's original $30 billion request.

JUAN WILLIAMS: A NEW FOUNDING FAMILY FOR TODAY’S AMERICA
To my mind, the great men and women of postwar America include Eleanor Roosevelt, Thurgood Marshall, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Ted Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Bill Bratton, Billy Graham, and many others. To understand them is to understand America in the twenty-first century. It is the story of a family—a new founding family for today’s America. They have kept faith with the ideals of the Founding Fathers while reshaping the country. They advanced the Founding Fathers’ audacious concept of a nation of free people forever able to maintain their own independence and liberty. These recent innovators have met the never-ending challenges, even threats, to the idea of a strong, free, creative people.
MCMASTER: US MUST PREPARE FOR MILITARY OPERATIONS IN NORTH KOREA
National security adviser H.R. McMaster said in an interview on “Fox News Sunday” that President Trump is seeking international support in trying to stop North Korea’s pursuit of a nuclearize weapon, reasserting Trump’s vow that the U.S. will no longer be the world’s policeman. McMaster on Sunday set out several options toward ending North Korea’s efforts -- a combination of nuclear tests and trying to develop a rocket that could carry a nuclear weapon. He said world leaders could enforce existing economic sanctions, impose additional ones or possibly taking military action.
