Trump wants to end birthright citizenship for children of non-citizens, unauthorised immigrants

US President Donald Trump plans to end the right to citizenship for the children of non-citizens and unauthorized immigrants born on US soil in what is arguably the most far-reaching move to staunch the growth of immigrant population in the United States reports Times of India.

"We're the only country in the world where a person comes in, has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States for 85 years with all of those benefits," Mr Trump said to ‘Axios on HBO’, a documentary series, clips of which have been released. "It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. And it has to end,” he said.

It is factually incorrect that the U.S. is the only country in the world with birthright citizenship laws, although only a minority have such laws.

Mr. Trump said he has consulted his counsel on this and plans to proceed with the executive order, which is almost certain to face legal challenges – as have his executive orders banning the entry into the U.S. of citizens from certain Muslim majority countries. It is by no means clear that the president has the legal authority to effect such a broad legal change through an executive order.

After months of trolling Trump, Merriam-Webster has no words about 'covfefe'

Donald Trump’s midnight tweet was as cryptic as it was divisive.
For more than five hours, people tried to decipher what the leader of the free world meant with his message: “Despite the constant negative press covfefe.”
By the time it was deleted at about 6am it had become something of a presidential Rorschach test, derided by Mr Trump’s critics as yet another symptom of a chaotic White House where officials lack the power to delete a garbled message but dismissed by supporters as an inconsequential distraction from the real business of making America great again.
