    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday issued a warning to Republicans poised to support President Trump's decision to declare a national emergency at the southern border: the next Democratic president, she said, could do the same on guns.

"So the precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans." Pelosi noted that Thursday marked the one-year anniversary of the shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 students and faculty dead....

Trump also said Biden is “weak,” adding that “we’ll see what happens with him.” Trump...
