The top House and Senate Democrats said they had reached agreement with President Donald Trump to protect thousands of younger immigrants from deportation and fund some border security enhancements – not including Trump’s long-sought border wall.

It was the second time in two weeks that Trump cut out Republicans to reach a deal with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

The latest agreement was reached as the president and Democratic leaders shared a dinner of Chinese food – (a Schumer favorite) – at the White House.

The NYC Board of Elections estimates just 439,963 people voted in Tuesday’s primaries — a mere 14 percent of the city’s 3.07 million registered active Democrats. That’s close to the 11 percent of 2009 that was the worst showing in modern memory.

Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, the GOP NYC mayoral candidate, said the dismal turnout shows “apathy” among Democrats and that NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s base isn’t “energized.”

Out of Buffalo’s approximately 270,000 residents, 13,346 voted for Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown Tuesday, making it tough for him to claim a mandate – though he won the lion’s share of votes.

The Investigative Post’s Jim Heaney notes Brown won with just 13,346 votes – the lowest of his four primary runs and little more than half of his total eight years ago. (Mickey Kearns garnered more votes eight years ago in losing to Brown in a landslide).

Winners and losers in the Syracuse primaries.

A so-called “genius” school to make the city a “global center of technology and innovation” officially opened on Roosevelt Island, realizing an idea first proposed by then-NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg a half-dozen years ago.

Weiner himself said his “continued acting out” over the years “crushed the aspirations” of his wife, veteran Clinton aide Huma Abedin, and ruined the couple’s marriage. Also, he said, his young son “will forever have to answer questions about the public and private failings of his father.”
