to prevent another government shutdown. >> in less than two days, the government is going to run out of money unless congress and the president take quick action. president trump sounds like he's ready to fight. >> reporter: congress seems to be making progress but a central question is what to do about immigration? and the president is holding firm. president trump listening to stories ant violence attributed to illegal immigrants and the ms 13 gang -- reached his limit. >> let's have a shutdown. we'll do a shutdown. and it's worth it for our country. i'd love to see a shutdown if we don't get this stuff taken care of. >> reporter: it was a threat he'd repeat just as lawmakers appeared to be reaching an agreement to avert a shutdown. >> i'm optimistic that very
soon we'll be able to reach an agreement. >> i've discussed some of the outlines with my caucus that i think we are very happy with and hopefully, the republicans are and we can get something really good done. >> reporter: the house passed the stopgap spending measure yesterday to fund the government through march 23rd. it included more money for the pentagon. but the bigger deal emerging in the senate could include new spending that leaders of both parties may ultimately sign off on. more money for the military. and a gusher of deficit fueled spending that would bust through spending caps. but nothing about immigration. how far is the president willing to push this? supporters of daca and if young immigrants known as
dreamers staged rallies outside of children's hospital.

driving drunk and killing indianapolis colts linebacker edwin jackson and another man in a car crash sunday in indiana. he's from guatemala and had a dui conviction in redwood city in 2005. he was forfeited in 2007 and -- deported in 2007 and again in 2009. >> it's so disgraceful that a person illegally in our country killed edwin jackson. we must get the dems to get tough fast. shocking new images from taiwan showing damage from the magnitude 6.4 earthquake that left five people dead and more than 240 hurt. you can see right here. look at one of the damaged building. it's tilted, pam. a 45 tree angle. the taiwan government fears the

greenberg has a shot at winning. >> i think his vision is something everything can resonate with. >> we have 35,000 people in san francisco who are republican and who are looking for someone to stand up for their issues and their values. >> part of his plan on homelessness is to conduct performance audits of programs funded by the city. the last republican mayor of the city was in the 1960s. an ordinance making bathrooms in residential hotels gender neutral. san francisco already has a law that requires single stall bathrooms to be marked for use by anyone. the previous law did not include residential hotels. these hotels provide low cost housing and single rooms to 18,000 people in san francisco. the housing code will now

welcome back to mornings on 2. investors hoping for a steadier day on wall street. yesterday, of course, the dow jones swung 1200 points, moving in each direction, changing directions 29 times in fact. after dropping 500 points at the opening bell. the dow picked up 567 points on the close. monday's fall was the largest point drop in history. the biggest percentage plunge in 6 1/2 years. traders should expect more
volatility. and some are predicting that the selloff may mostly be over. however, there does remain some apprehension over higher inflation and higher interest rates. >> i think going forward that volatility won't be as high as the past couple of days. i think we can expect to see more of it because rates will be going up. and that will create uneasiness among investors. retailers and industrial companies saw gains. stock futures are down this morning, certainly not nearly as low as yesterday. looks like a slightly lower opening and we'll check on the opening bell when it rings in two hours from now. president trump has until friday to decide if he'll release a democratic memo responding to republican claims about alleged surveillance abuses. the democratic memo is a rebuttal to last week's
republican document that criticized fbi methods to get a warrant to spy on the a former campaign member. democrats say the claims were misleading and not accurate. >> ours bolsters the credibility of the fbi to point out that they did go through the correct process. that a voluminous amount of evidence was presented to the fisa court. >> if the president does not release the memo, there's concern that this could pit the trump administration and republican lawmakers against democrats and the intelligence committee. a settlement requires president trump to pay $25 million to previous students of trump university. the student say the university committed fraud by charging $35,000 and failing to deliver the promised secrets of real estate success. the court rejected objections from one student who initially agreed to the class action lawsuit and then she wanted to

meeting would not change his stance on one very sensitive topic. >> my message will be the same. north korea must once and for all abandon its nuclear weapons. >> reporter: south korean officials are still dealing with a security issue closer to the olympics. local organizers are still trying to replace 1200 private security guards who are being sequestered after being exposed to norovirus. 32 workers have been quarantines, and the south korean military is being used until the other workers can return to their jobs. sal is on the job right now. he's here watching the morning commute. >> that's right. and i don't see a lot going on. dave and pam, this is the way we like it. nice and quiet. and we're looking at northbound 101 from gilroy to san jose and
