President Trump is going to make a major announcement tomorrow afternoon on the situation at the southern border and the shutdown. The President tweeted tonight that he will speak from the White House at 3 p.m. Eastern time. He has said in the past that if negotiations bog down on the shutdown, he would declare a national emergency to give himself the power to divert funds toward building a border wall.       The spokesman for Special Counsel Robert Mueller is disputing a BuzzFeed story regarding supposed statements from President Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen. The report prompted some of the President's critics to call for his impeachment, while some lawmakers promised to investigate the matter. Mueller's spokesperson said the description of relevant statements to the Special Counsel's office aren't accurate.       The markets are reacting positively to news that talks between China and the U.S. are going well toward a trade deal. China suggested buying up to a trillion-dollars more in U.S. goods over the next six years to help even out the trade imbalance.        The white former Chicago police officer who shot a black teen 16 times and killed him will be going to jail for up to six years. A judge sentenced Jason Van Dyke today for the 2014 killing of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald.       R. Kelly and his label, Sony Music, are reportedly splitting as the singer faces sexual abuse allegations. The record label has been under mounting pressure to cut ties with Kelly following the release of a TV series called "Surviving R. Kelly." That series airs several allegations of sexual, physical and emotional abuse against the Grammy-winning artist.        The weather is clearing up in Kansas City in time for this weekend's AFC championship game between the Chiefs and the New England Patriots. There were fears the game would be played in bitter cold, but the temperatures are now expected to approach 30 degrees.
