Kylie Morris is the Washington correspondent for Channel 4 News.
Kylie is a former Channel 4 News Asia correspondent and was also the presenter of More 4 News. Kylie previously worked at the BBC as the Gaza correspondent from 2001-2002, Kabul correspondent 2002-2004, for which she won an FPA award, and then as the BBC Asia correspondent until joining Channel 4 News in 2006.
One of her first assignments for Channel 4 News was reporting the conflict in Lebanon in July 2006, for which we collectively won an RTS Award. She has been in and out of the newsroom in the last two years - recently she reported the Gulnaz film alongside Leslie Knott and Cleminitne Malpas which has just been nominated for another FPA award.
The White House says it’s working on a new executive order to replace the immigration travel ban, blocked by the courts. While that ban against refugees, as well as citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries, drew headlines worldwide, President Trump’s immigration policies at home have received less attention.
He’s blamed intelligence officials for leaking “illegal information” to the media, and blamed the media for treating his sacked national security adviser “very, very unfairly”.
The President’s National Security Adviser, Mike Flynn, has had to resign over telephone conversations he held with the Russian ambassador before he was appointed to office.
That other self-styled outsider who made it to president, Donald Trump, is finding life in power tougher than he expected. After the courts’ rejection of his migrant travel ban, now he is facing opposition to his National Security Adviser, Mike Flynn, who’s been accused of inappropriate relations with Russia and Turkey.
There are limits to executive power, and President Trump has just run slap bang into them. Last night an American court again refused to uphold his travel ban, leaving Mr Trump venting his fury on Twitter about what he called the “disgraceful decision” and vowing to fight back.
If you, like us, were puzzled by the assertion last night from Donald Trump that the “very, very dishonest media” were under-reporting terrorist attacks around the world, the White House has now listed 78 acts of terrorism, which it claims were under-reported.
Donald Trump began his day with a tweet dismissing as “fake news” polls that suggested public dissatisfaction with his migrant ban. But, despite his ready use of the label for pretty much anything he dislikes, Trump was seen as benefiting from made-up stories during the Presidential election campaign.
Donald Trump says he wants an “elegant and dignified” confirmation process for the man he’s nominated to the Supreme Court. And he’s threatened Democrats who try to block Neil Gorsuch he could use the “nuclear option” to force a simple majority vote.
To Washington now, where the Homeland Security Secretary, John Kelly, has said the restrictions on migrants from seven countries is not a ban on Muslims and is and will remain in compliance with judicial orders.
A new poll has revealed that the majority of US voters support President Trump’s ban on refugees and visitors from those seven predominantly Muslim countries.
Donald Trump is dealing with quite a lot today – fallout from his comments on torture, what seems like the breakdown of another important alliance – with Mexico – over the wall, and high level departures in the State Department – some of America’s best and brightest diplomats among them.
There will be a wall along the Mexican border, with the planning work starting right now. And, Donald Trump declared today, Mexico will “absolutely” pay.
Kylie Morris has the latest on today’s White House briefing.
Welcome to Washington DC, where Donald Trump has been issuing executive orders on his first full day in the White House behind me.
This day will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.
