Friday News Roundup - Domestic
President Donald Trump has found new bargaining partners on Capitol Hill. After meeting over a meal, the president and Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are close to a deal that would continue the protections of the Delayed Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. Many Republicans aren’t happy about the talks.
In the Senate, many Democrats are signing on to Bernie Sanders’ Medicare for all plan.
And in Baltimore, the Department of Justice has declined to prosecute any of the officers involved in Freddie Gray’s death. Several representatives and senators said they are disappointed, but not surprised.
