DOJ to appeal ban halt

The Justice Department is moving forward with its defense of President Trump’s revised executive order on travel and refugees — taking steps to appeal court rulings that have blocked for a second time its nationwide enforcement.

In a two-pronged approach, government lawyers argued in one case out of Hawaii that a federal judge’s ruling there should be scaled back, while in a Maryland case they filed notice they intend to appeal a ruling that put a narrower portion of the executive order on hold. The legal strategy could aim to have an appeal heard by an appellate court that might be friendlier to their case, according to legal experts.

Germany rejects Trump claim it owes Nato and US ‘vast sums’ for defence

The German defense minister, Ursula von der Leyen, on Sunday rejected Donald Trump’s claim that Germany owes Nato and the US “vast sums” of money for defense.
