President Donald Trump caused confusion during a Saturday rally in Florida when he said: “You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this?” Trump then mentioned the French cities of Nice and Paris and the Belgian capital, Brussels. The three European cities were all attacked by terrorists over the past two years.

Well, I respect a lot of people, but that doesn’t mean I’ll get along with them,” Trump saidRead More

While his administration followed the orders of U.S. District Judge James Robart, theRead More

WASHINGTON: Asserting that artificial trade barriers between India and the US would “evaporate” quickly, an Indian-American donor and supporter of US President Donald Trump has said fears about the H-1B overhauling is “overblown” and the issue is unlikely to cause trouble in bilateral ties. “President Trump first and foremost is a businessman. He knows how to grow US as a business. He is pretty clear on the position of US Chambers of Commerce that in order to grow the American economy, you need a lot of IT experts and professionals,”Read More
Judge Ann Donnelly of the U.S. District Court in Brooklyn granted a request from the ACLU to stay deportations of those detained on entry to the United States following President Donald Trump’s executive order. After a brief hearing in front of a small audience that filtered in from a crowd of hundreds outside, Donnelly determined that the risk of injury to those detained by being returned to their home countries necessitated the decision. She seemed to have little patience for the arguments presented by the government, which focused heavily onRead More
