In Iowa, the president channels his inner candidate Trump

President Donald Trump on Wednesday night held a campaign-style rally in Iowa, at which he congratulated the Republican winners of Tuesday's special elections in SC and Georgia.

Trump also used his Kirkwood remarks to praise farmers, whose work he called "noble", and to send off former Iowa Governor Terry Branstad, who resigned his post to become the USA ambassador to China.

President Donald Trump said in a speech here Wednesday night he would soon introduce legislation that immigrants to America should not receive welfare benefits for at least five years.

The comment came a day after Trump said Chinese efforts to persuade North Korea to rein in its weapons programmes had failed.
