President Trump

Trump's cognitive ability is normal, says White House doctor

"I have no concerns about his cognitive ability or neurological functions," Ronny Jackson said on Tuesday.

Last week, Mr Trump underwent a three-hour examination in his first medical check-up since becoming US president.

It comes after the release of a controversial book fuelled speculation about the president's mental health.

Speaking to reporters during a White House briefing on Tuesday, Dr Jackson said that the president's overall health was "excellent".

Trump's Twitter account briefly 'deactivated'

It said that the @realdonaldtrump account was "deactivated" by an employee, later clarifying that it was their last day in the job.

The account was down for 11 minutes, and Twitter is now investigating.

Mr Trump - who is an active Twitter user with 41.7 million followers - has not commented on the issue.

On Thursday evening, visitors to Mr Trump's page for a short time could only see a message that read "Sorry, that page doesn't exist!"

Trump was insensitive in call to widow - soldier's mother

Representative Frederica Wilson said he had told Myeshia Johnson: "He knew what he was signing up for, but I guess it hurts anyway."

Mr Trump said Ms Wilson's account was "totally fabricated".

Sgt La David Johnson was killed in Niger by Islamist militants this month.

He was one four US special service soldiers who died in an ambush.

Mr Trump had already been criticised for not contacting the families of the dead servicemen right after the fatal ambush on 4 October.

Trump aims blow at Iran and threatens landmark nuclear deal

In a combative speech on Friday, Mr Trump accused Iran of sponsoring terrorism and proposed new sanctions.

He said Iran had already violated the 2015 deal, which imposed curbs on Iran's nuclear capability in return for easing international embargoes.

International observers say Iran has been in full compliance with the deal.

Speaking at the White House, Mr Trump said he was acting in order to deny Iran "all paths to a nuclear weapon".

Jared Kushner 'registered to vote as a woman'

His gender is listed as "female" in records from the New York State Board of Elections, according to screen grabs published by Wired.

The images suggest Mr Kushner, who is a senior adviser to the president, registered to vote in November 2009.

The former property investor has not commented on the news, so it remains unclear how the error occurred.

The mistake is unlikely to constitute voter fraud, as that requires the culprit to deliberately give false information.

Trump's first UN speech met with criticism from some leaders

The US president included Iran among "a small group of rogue regimes", and said the US would "totally destroy" North Korea if forced to do so.

Iran's foreign minister said: "Trump's ignorant hate speech belongs in medieval times", and not the UN.

North Korea has yet to respond to the president's threat of destruction.

Mr Trump's speech laid out a vision for a world filled with sovereign states which worked for the betterment of their citizens - but he spent large portions targeting what he called "rogue nations" which are "the scourge of our planet today".

Trump travel ban injunction partly lifted by top US court

America's highest court also granted a White House request allowing part of its refugee ban to go into effect.

The justices said they would consider in October whether the president's policy should be upheld or struck down.

Mr Trump seeks to place a 90-day ban on people from six mainly Muslim nations and a 120-day ban on refugees.

The president welcomed the ruling's qualified authorisation to bar visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, which he described as "terror-prone countries".

Trump: I did not record ex-FBI chief James Comey

He tweeted that he "did not make, and do not have, any such recordings", a day before he was required to hand over any such tapes by Congress.

Mr Trump kick-started speculation of recordings in a tweet he posted days after firing Mr Comey in May.

He said: "James Comey better hope there are no 'tapes' of our conversations".

White House leaks reveal Donald Trump's request for softer towels and short notes
