The chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers is usually part of the cabinet, but not in Donald Trump’s White House.

Then, as we consider a leaked border wall budget, we look at policing in both Nogales, Arizona, and Nogales, Mexico. Plus, as always, we discuss the week in business news.
