President Donald Trump announced that not only did he sign off on a national budget, but he would also declare a national state of emergency. Two very big deals and we explain them both! 

We also learn about protests and how they can impact businesses like Amazon and a dolphin marine park.

Finally, we check in at a few schools to see how a food pantry is feeding students after the final bell and how dressing up for art class can be a whole lot of fun!
