Elizabeth Warren to declare 2020 run with income equality at centre of campaign

Sunday 15:24 GMT

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has picked this working-class city for the expected kickoff of her 2020 president campaign, banking on a populist call to fight economic inequality that she hopes will distinguish her in a crowded Democratic field and help her move past the controversy surrounding her past claims to Native American heritage.

Trump says he's declaring emergency to build border wall

Today 02:24 GMT

U.S. President Donald Trump announced Friday that he will declare a national emergency to fulfil his pledge to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Even if his emergency declaration withstands challenge, Trump is still billions of dollars short of his overall funding needed to build the wall as he promised in 2016. After two years of effort, Trump has not added any new border mileage; all of the construction so far has gone to replacing and repairing existing structures.
