President Donald Trump said he was no longer exploring a cut to payroll taxes, less than 24 hours after initially discussing the option on Tuesday, according to Vox News.

NBC News said a 15-year-old boy was arrested last Friday in Volusia County, Florida after writing threats about shooting classmates in a...
