Trump signs new Muslim travel ban excluding Iraq

US President, Donald Trump has just signed a new and updated executive order banning immigration from six Muslim-majority countries, notably dropping Iraq from January's previous order.   The new travel ban comes six weeks after Trump's original executive order was rolled out amid chaos and confusion at airports in the United States and eventually blocked by a federal court.  The new executive order still temporary bans Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. And it won't take effect till March 16th. And it doesn't affect green card holders and those with valid visas. Hopefully, US federal judges will stop this too. What do you think about the Trump's new ban?   Comment below.....

Trump wire tap: FBI chief Comey 'rejects' allegation

The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, has asked the Justice Department to reject President Trump’s claim that former President, Barack Obama had ordered the wiretapping of his phones at the Trump Towers, senior American officials said on Sunday.
Comey said that the claim is false and must be corrected, because Trump has no evidence to back it up and it insinuates that the F.B.I. broke the law, but the department has not responded to Comey's request yet.

Comey refuting Trump’s claim shows a remarkable rebuke of a sitting president, putting the nation’s top law enforcement officials in the position of questioning the truthfulness of the leader of the free world.

Comey is understandably worried about the potential attacks on F.B.I.'s credibility if it's proven that indeed they wire tapped Trump Towers.

Now it's the Republican under fire.
