    “Congress returns to Trump’s infrastructure plan, looming deadlines on spending, immigration” (Fox News 12/31/17) http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/12/31/congress-returns-to-trumps-infrastructure-plan-looming-deadlines-on-spending-immigration.html “Congress returns next week facing several looming challenges leading with President Trump’s call to strike an infrastructure deal promptly, and agreeing to a temporary spending deal to avoid a government shutdown. Other key issues facing the GOP-controlled Congress include immigration reform and whether to fund Trump’s promised U.S.-Mexico border wall. …a demand by Trump to include border wall funding or Democrats’ demanding a fix to the soon-to-expire Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program easily could complicate budget negotiations.
    …Meanwhile, Ryan and McConnell appear split on whether Congress will attempt so-called entitlement reform, which could include changes to Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare or food stamps.”

    Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto postpones his visit to the White House after Trump ‘loses his temper’ during a testy 50-minute phone call : Trump would not agree to publicly affirm Mexico’s position that it would not fund construction of the wall along the US-Mexico border. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5431723/Mexican-presidents-visit-White-House-postponed-testy-Trump-call.html Reportedly US officials described Trump as frustrated and exasperated, because he believed it was unreasonable for Pena Nieto to want him to back off his campaign promise of forcing Mexico to pay for the wall.
