DONALD Trump last night toured a repaired section of the Mexico border wall - before declaring: "Our country is full." The US president inspected a newly-built 30ft "bollard wall" at a California border town amid what he and his administration have repeatedly claimed is an "emergency" at the frontier. A White House spokesperson called the repaired fencing "the first completed section of the new border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border." Although the new barrier only replaces antiquated fencing made from landing mats scavenged during the Vietnam War era. No new construction has taken place along the 1,954-mile border in spots where no barriers existed when Trump was sworn into office.

The US Supreme Court has handed President Donald Trump a victory on his policy barring many transgender people from the military, allowing it to go into effect by lifting lower court rulings that had blocked the plan on constitutional grounds. Tuesday's decision, with the court's five conservative justices prevailing over its four liberals, granted the Trump administration's request to lift injunctions issued by federal judges against the policy while a challenge to its legality continues in lower courts. The liberal justices favoured keeping the injunctions in place. The justices, however, refused the administration's request for them to decide the merits of the legal fight even before a California-based federal appeals court already considering the matter is given a chance to rule. Attorneys representing transgender people already in the military or hoping to join condemned the court's action.
