It's all kicked off in the States again, Donald Trump has fired the acting Attorney General overnight.

It's for questioning the legality of his immigration ban. Just hours before, Sally Yates had told lawyers at the Department of Justice not to defend the executive order in court.

She was appointed by President Obama, but has been replaced by Dana Boente who's reversed her order.

The White House has accused Ms Yates of betrayal, they released this statement shortly after.

Mr Trump says the ban is about protecting Americans. Last night senior democrats gathered outside the Supreme Court in protest, including Bernie Sanders

Inside some of Trump's cabinet were still being sworn in.
