ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York's attorney general says his state will join Washington state's lawsuit against President Donald Trump's travel ban. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in a statement calls the executive order "a Muslim ban by another name." Legal challenges to the ban are mounting. Yesterday Hawaii filed its own lawsuit against Trump's revised travel ban, saying the order will harm its Muslim population, tourism and foreign students. Washington state won an initial effort to block Trump's first travel ban and is asking a judge to block the revised ban. (V2776)

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — President Donald Trump has scheduled another campaign-style rally, this time in Nashville, Tennessee. The president's campaign website is advertising the event next Wednesday at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium. It will be the president's second such rally since his inauguration. He held his first last month in Florida. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has said the president intends to hit the road to sell the American public on the Republican health care plan that he supports. It's unclear whether the Tennessee rally is part of that tour. (RT5164)
