Jared Kushner 'registered to vote as a woman'

His gender is listed as "female" in records from the New York State Board of Elections, according to screen grabs published by Wired.

The images suggest Mr Kushner, who is a senior adviser to the president, registered to vote in November 2009.

The former property investor has not commented on the news, so it remains unclear how the error occurred.

The mistake is unlikely to constitute voter fraud, as that requires the culprit to deliberately give false information.

Trump's first UN speech met with criticism from some leaders

The US president included Iran among "a small group of rogue regimes", and said the US would "totally destroy" North Korea if forced to do so.

Iran's foreign minister said: "Trump's ignorant hate speech belongs in medieval times", and not the UN.

North Korea has yet to respond to the president's threat of destruction.

Mr Trump's speech laid out a vision for a world filled with sovereign states which worked for the betterment of their citizens - but he spent large portions targeting what he called "rogue nations" which are "the scourge of our planet today".

Trump travel ban injunction partly lifted by top US court

America's highest court also granted a White House request allowing part of its refugee ban to go into effect.

The justices said they would consider in October whether the president's policy should be upheld or struck down.

Mr Trump seeks to place a 90-day ban on people from six mainly Muslim nations and a 120-day ban on refugees.

The president welcomed the ruling's qualified authorisation to bar visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, which he described as "terror-prone countries".

Trump: I did not record ex-FBI chief James Comey

He tweeted that he "did not make, and do not have, any such recordings", a day before he was required to hand over any such tapes by Congress.

Mr Trump kick-started speculation of recordings in a tweet he posted days after firing Mr Comey in May.

He said: "James Comey better hope there are no 'tapes' of our conversations".

White House leaks reveal Donald Trump's request for softer towels and short notes

President Trump's @POTUS Twitter linked to a private Gmail account

Roles for Trump tribe come into focus

Trump transition aides are already planning for an "Office of the First Family," in the East Wing where the current office of the first lady is located, sources familiar with the plan told CNN.

Melania Trump is still expected to play a role in the White House. However, Ivanka is expected to have a prominent slot as well. A source said she is likely to play the part of Washington hostess as well as advise her father on issues including family leave to climate change.

"No decisions have been made regarding Ivanka's role," Hope Hicks, Trump's spokeswoman, told CNN.

Three Trump calls spook Washington

But now the President-elect is applying the same unorthodox, off-the-cuff style of leadership to sensitive diplomatic procedure and it's causing a storm at home and overseas.

Trump flew in the face of four decades of international protocol and precedent Friday when he became the first President or President-elect known to speak directly to the leader of Taiwan since the US established formal relations with Beijing in 1979.

Alt-right leader: 'Hail Trump! Hail our people! Hail victory!'

The president of the alt-right National Policy Institute Richard Spencer's remarks were posted Sunday on YouTube by "Red Ice Radio," which describes itself as "covering politics and social issues from a pro-European perspective." The Atlantic magazine, which is recording footage of Spencer for a documentary they're working on, also published a video of the same event showing audience members apparently giving the Nazi salute.
