President Trump said in a Sunday morning tweet that there will be "no big push" to remove anyone who is in the country illegally, but indicated Democrats should "be careful" in criticizing his offer to Congress to reopen the government.

Driving the news: Trump proposed Saturday a 3-year extension of protections for DACA recipients and Temporary Protected Status holders in exchange for $5.7 billion in border funding. Democrats have already pushed back on Trump's offer.

The tweet, directed at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi:

  • "No, Amnesty is not a part of my offer. It is a 3 year extension of DACA. Amnesty will be used only on a much bigger deal, whether on immigration or something else. Likewise there will be no big push to remove the 11,000,000 plus people who are here illegally-but be careful Nancy!"

He followed that up with: "Nancy Pelosi has behaved so irrationally & has gone so far to the left that she has now officially become a Radical Democrat. She is so petrified of the “lefties” in her party that she has lost control," he said in a tweet.

Big Tech fed politics. Then it bled politics. Now it wants to be dead to politics. 

Why it matters: The massive social platforms that profited massively on politics and free speech suddenly want a way out — or at least a way to hide until the heat cools.

GameStop as a metaphor

A half-forgotten and unprofitable videogame retailer is, bizarrely and incredibly, on the lips of the nation. That's because the GameStop story touches on economic and cultural forces that affect everyone, whether they own a single share of stock or not.

Why it matters: In most Wall Street fights, the broader public doesn't have a rooting interest. This one — where a group of small traders won a multi-billion-dollar bet against giant hedge funds by buying stock in GameStop — is different.

"Megacities" on the rise

Data: Macrotrends; Map: Andrew Witherspoon/Axios

Places with more than 10 million residents — known as megacities — are becoming more common as people from rural areas migrate to urban ones.

Why it matters: The benefits of megacities — which include opportunities for upward mobility and higher wages — can be offset by their negatives, like the fact that they're breeding grounds for COVID-19.
