This week's top stories: Leaders weigh in on Donald Trump's "wall;" LGBT March on Washington in the works; and celebrate Big Mike's 60th birthday!
It's been an interesting first full-week of Donald J. Trump's presidency, especially because of his Executive Order to build a wall at the US-Mexico border..
