And a few replies:


HEALTHCARE

Fourteen million Americans would lose medical insurance by next year under a Republican plan to dismantle Obamacare, the nonpartisan U.S. Congressional Budget Office says in a report that dealt a potential setback toTrump's first major legislative initiative.

A Republican plan to repeal taxes set under Obamacare would benefit the wealthiest U.S. households at more than five times the rate for middle-income families, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center.

The U.S. Department of Justice asks for more time to respond to a request from lawmakers for evidence aboutTrump's allegation that then-President Barack Obama wiretapped him during the 2016 election campaign.


TRAVEL BAN

A group of states renew their effort to blockTrump's revised temporary ban on refugees and travelers from several Muslim-majority countries, arguing that his executive order is the same as the first one that was halted by federal courts.

GERMANY

Trump's meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been pushed back from Tuesday until Friday because of the winter storm bearing down on the northeastern United States, the White House says.

Ahead of her trip to Washington, Merkel tells business leaders in Munich that free trade is important for both the United States and Germany.

Trumpis set to formally announce a review of vehicle fuel efficiency rules locked in at the end of the Obama administration when he meets with automaker chiefs this week, according to two sources briefed on the matter.

BUDGET

Trumpon Thursday unveils his 2018 budget emphasizing a military buildup, and some Republicans are concerned they will be forced to choose between opposing the president or backing reductions in popular programs such as aid for disabled children and hot meals for the elderly.


ADMINISTRATION
