President Trump is facing an historic impeachment trial in the Senate that gets underway today. He slammed the process this morning speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, calling it all a hoax and a disgrace. Meanwhile, the Senate reconvenes at 12:30 p.m. Eastern time and the first order of business is to debate trial rules.        Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin [[ mih-NEW-chin ]] says the next phase of a trade deal with China wouldn't necessarily remove all existing tariffs on Chinese imports. Mnuchin told The Wall Street Journal the Trump administration might remove tariffs "sequentially," breaking a Phase 2 deal into several steps.        Organizers say a gun buyback Monday in Pittsburgh was so successful, they ran out of money in less than an hour. The program held on Doctor Martin Luther King, Junior day at Holy Cross Episcopal Church was offering 100-dollars per gun turned in, no questions asked. Church officials say 40-minutes later, they had paid out over five-thousand-dollars.        Pressure to ban horse racing is growing after three horses died in as many days at California's Santa Anita Park. A gelding was put down on Friday after breaking his ankle during a race. Another horse was euthanized on Saturday after suffering a similar injury. And a third race horse died on Sunday during training. At least 42 horses have died at the track in just over a year.       A veterans group is speaking out against a proposed bill that would create "Make American Great Again" and "Keep America Great" specialty license plates in Oklahoma. If the legislation is approved, part of the revenue from the license plate sales would go to the groups "Folds of Honor" and "Warriors For Freedom." The Veterans of Foreign Wars Department of Oklahoma released a statement on Sunday asking lawmakers not to use veterans as a tool to sell the license plates.        Tim Tebow has officially tied the knot. The Heisman Trophy winner has tied the knot with former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters. The couple got engaged last year, and they were married Monday night in Cape Town, South Africa.
