Trump admin imposes visa sanctions on countries for refusing deportees

Trump imposes visa sanctions on countries refusing deporteesThe Department of Homeland Security and State Department announced Wednesday that they would impose visa sanctions on four countries for not taking back citizens who have been ordered to be deported from the United States.

The sanctions will be imposed on Cambodia, Eritrea, Guinea and Sierra Leone. Only certain categories of visa applicants will be restricted under the sanctions and a final determination will be made on a country-by-country basis. But unless the countries in question deliver an "appropriate response," the DHS said wider visa restrictions could be imposed on the general population.

'Millions of dollars missing' in school aid for Syrians

Millions missing in school aid for Syrians

Governments and aid agencies have been unable to account for millions of dollars in school aid for Syrian refugees, frustrating efforts to meet schooling needs for children in Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey, according to a rights group.

More than 500,000 school-age Syrian refugees in the three countries were out of school last year, in part because of severe funding gaps, says the report released by the New York-based Human Rights Watch (HRW) on Thursday.

There are at least 1.6 million Syrian children refugees in the region.

UN approves watered-down new sanctions against North Korea

UN vote on N Korean sanctions

The U.N. Security Council on Monday unanimously approved new sanctions on North Korea but not the measures sought by the Trump administration to ban all oil imports and freeze international assets of the government and its leader, Kim Jong Un.

The resolution, responding to Pyongyang's sixth and strongest nuclear test explosion on Sept. 3, does ban North Korea from importing all natural gas liquids and condensates. It also bans all textile exports and prohibits any country from authorizing new work permits for North Korean workers — two key sources of hard currency for the northeast Asian nation.

The Trumpability Index: Where a local Donald Trump might get elected. in Europe

Trumpability Inex in European elections

Now, this American president supposedly isn’t the Continent’s favorite cup of tea (or whatever the beverage of European choice is). A Pew Research Center survey found Trump to be “broadly unpopular” worldwide, with 22 percent of those polled trusting him to do the right thing. Barely a fifth of Europeans are confident Trump will do the right thing, and that includes the Trumpophiles in Russia.

But those numbers don’t tell the whole story. If you look at his most recognizable personal characteristics (forceful and charismatic to his backers; arrogant and intolerant to the other side) and at his signature policies (opposed to free trade and open borders for migrants, skeptical on regulation and the nanny state, my-nation-first everything), then Trumpism holds more appeal in the Old World than the European chattering classes think.

To determine just how much appeal Trump might have in 47 European countries, POLITICO introduces the Trumpability Index.
