Trump later explained he was watching a Fox News segment that featured a documentary filmmaker accusing the Swedish government of covering up an immigration-related crime wave there.

By MacDonald Dzirutwe HARARE (Reuters) - As he celebrated his 93rd birthday on Tuesday, Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe brushed aside persistent allegations of corruption against senior officials, saying rumour-mongers were merely targeting "big fish" in his administration.

EPA chief Pruitt appeals to ?civility? but fails to quell environmentalists? concerns
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt?s first speech to employees of the EPA at midday on Tuesday did little to assuage the concerns of environmentalists over his ties to the fossil fuel industry.

Trump?s Sweden gaffe gets ridiculed on late night TV
When President Trump picks up his copy of the New York Times on Tuesday morning, he?ll see something he likes for a change: a photo of himself smiling and shaking hands with his new national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, a pick that has been widely praised.
