0 5

WASHINGTON: President Trump yesterday said that he plans to issue a new executive order next week, even as his earlier travel ban is blocked by a federal court. “We are issuing a new executive action next week that will comprehensively protect our country,” Trump said at a surprise news conference at the White House. Trump launched a ferocious attack on the media while defending his record during his first weeks in office. In a nearly hour-long press conference he lambasted the media questioning reporters level of honesty. The president used his speech to tout his fulfilment of campaign promises on immigration and border security. Mr Trump opened his remarks by mounting a blistering attack on the media for underplaying his achievements after he “inherited a mess at home and abroad”. The president said he was appearing at the White House news conference to take his message “straight to the people”. “The press has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people,” he said. He also dismissed claims that his administration has had a chaotic start. “This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine,” he said. –Agencies
