President Trump

Lexington Herald-Leader/Kentucky.com

President Donald Trump will be in Louisville, Kentucky Monday  evening.  As Cheri Lawson reports, the trip comes as the president is in what the White House calls ‘sell mode’ for the Republican healthcare bill, with a vote in the House planned for this week.  

Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul has been outspoken in his opposition to the replacement bill because it doesn’t go far enough to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Democrats are planning a protest outside Louisville's Freedom Hall.

President Trump has signed a revised executive order, once again barring travel to the United States from six majority-Muslim countries and suspending the U.S. refugee program.

It’s similar to the president’s January order that was blocked by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. But this latest order leaves Iraq off the list of barred countries. The White House cites more cooperation with the Iraqi government in vetting people who apply for U.S. visas.
