President Trump is threatening to shut down the government if he doesn't get funding for a border wall. Top Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi met with the President yesterday at the White House. Schumer accused Trump of throwing a temper tantrum over the border wall, and said a government shutdown would be harmful and completely unnecessary. Pelosi said a "Trump shutdown" would be a lousy Christmas present for Americans.        Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen will find out today how much time he'll do behind bars. Sentencing guidelines call for four to five years and despite his lawyers' calls for leniency. Federal prosecutors say Cohen deserves a stiff sentence because he wasn't as forthcoming as he could have been. He's pleaded guilty to tax and campaign finance violations.        A university in Los Angeles is giving final exams off-campus because of mass-shooting threats. Starting today, Cal State Northridge will administer final exams off-campus after receiving its second mass-shooting threat in less than a week. Professors were told to offer online or off-campus alternatives for finals after a student discovered a handwritten letter on Monday warning of a campus shooting.        Another death row inmate has been executed in Texas. Alvin Braziel was executed last night for murdering a man and then raping his wife. The 1993 murder was unsolved until 2001, when DNA evidence pointed to Braziel. He's the 13th person executed this year in Texas, which leads the nation in executions.       Louisville, Kentucky, is taking down a public statue of a pro-slavery newspaper publisher. A statue of George Prentice was removed Tuesday from outside the Louisville Free Public Library. Prentice spoke out against Catholics, Irish and immigrants as publisher of the Louisville Journal. His statue was vandalized earlier this year.        The top Google searches for 2018 focus on soccer, destructive weather, and high-profile deaths and suicides. The World Cup is this year's most Googled term. That's appropriate for the world's most-watched sport event. The second-most Googled event, Hurricane Florence, swept destruction across the Carolinas. Number three is the suspected drug overdose death of 26-year-old rapper Mac Miller.
