    Washington Week [#5711] For the second week in a row, President Trump has bucked the Republican Party and made a deal with Democrats in Congress. The president says he'll work with Democratic Leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to make sure undocumented immigrants brought to this country as children are protected from deportation after the phase-out of DACA. In return, he wants stepped-up border security.
    *Once again, Mr. Trump's conservative base is seething.
    *Earlier in the week, the president invited several vulnerable Democrats to the White House for a bipartisan dinner to discuss tax reform, one of the president's top priorities. Could another deal with Democrats be on the horizon?
    *Republicans aren't the only ones on Capitol Hill questioning their ideology. A health care divide is growing in the Democratic Party after independent Sen. Bernie Sanders introduced a single-payer insurance bill he calls "Medicare for All." Just 17 senators have signed on to the proposal so there is no chance it will become law this term. But will universal health care be a new litmus test for Democrats in 2018 and beyond?
