Clip: 02/01/2019 | 5m 28s

In our Friday news wrap, President Trump says he’s closer to declaring a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border, a move that could let him use defense and other funds to build a physical wall there. Also, the Midwest's brutal cold blast has finally begun to subside. Weekend temperatures may rise 80 degrees from extreme recent lows, which caused widespread disruption and at least 25 deaths.
