As we go to air, Donald Trump is meeting with reporters and staff at the New York Times. Yesterday, an off-the-record meeting with TV anchors and executives featured Trump blasting them as "unfair, lying and biased." Hadas Gold, media reporter for Politico, has more on both meetings.
Donald Trump threatened a ban on Muslim immigration during his campaign, and, since, his election, incidents of ethnic intimidation are on the rise. That's created a climate of fear among Muslim Americans, who worry about an official Muslim registry. Trump himself has issued conflicting statements, but it's been done before — most recently in the aftermath of September 11. During WWII, Japanese-Americans were interned, and some Trump surrogates have insisted the legal precedent still applies. We update that story.

David Graham is politics writer for the Atlantic based in Durham, North Carolina.
