New CBS poll: Trump 48% disapproval, 40% approval.

By Sarah Dutton, Jennifer De Pinto, Fred Backus, Kabir Khanna and Anthony Salvanto

Two weeks into Donald Trump’s presidency, the country remains sharply divided along partisan lines. A large majority of Republicans approves of President Trump and his recent executive order temporarily restricting entry into the U.S. by foreigners and refugees, while Democrats disapprove in similar numbers.

Slightly more Americans disapprove (51 percent) than approve (45 percent) of President Trump’s executive order temporarily banning people from entering the U.S. from seven designated countries. Views on temporarily suspending entry for refugees are the same. Opinions on these issues are highly partisan.

In the CBS News Poll’s first measure of Mr. Trump’s job performance as president, 40 percent of Americans approve of the job he is doing -- the lowest of any president just after his first inauguration since the Gallup Poll began taking those measures in 1953. Some 48 percent disapprove.

Another frightened little snowflake refuses to meet with his constituents

Cotton's Little Rock office: field offices won't meet with constituents because of "recent threats"

A staffer at Sen. Tom Cotton's Little Rock office told a small group of constituents yesterday that Cotton offices are not allowing any constituents in "because of recent threats we have had." The staffer, from behind closed door, said that the order came from Cotton's D.C. office. The staffer said she would pass on information to the senator if they would like to tell her through the door, but that no one from the senator's staff would meet with constituents at this time.

The video above shows Sarah Scanlon and four other citizens attempting to arrange a meeting with a Cotton staffer (Scanlon was previously the national LGBTQ Outreach Director for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign). Scanlon said that she and others have been trying to call Cotton's offices, both in D.C. and in Arkansas, but no one is answering. "They've turned off their telephones," she said. "They've locked their doors, they're not letting you in."

Trumps supporters will be his first victims, says Nobel Prize winnng economist

by May Bulman

The core of Donald Trump supporters who have suffered most as a result of globalisation will be the first to suffer under the Trump administration, a Nobel Prize winning economist has said.

Joseph Stiglitz, an American economist and former vice president of the World Bank, who won a Nobel Memorial Prize in 2001, said the President’s economic programme was likely to “trigger a vicious cycle”, in which those who have suffered most from globalisation over the past 25 years would be the “first victims”.

Speaking during an interview with Le Monde, Mr Stiglitz, who has previously denounced the excesses of globalisation and its contribution to the rise in inequality, said while Mr Trump's protectionist policies may save "a few hundred" American jobs, this would not compensate for those that will be lost.

Betsy DeVos 'is unprepared and unqualified' to be Education secretary, charter school booster Eli Broad says

by Joy Resmovits

Eli Broad, the prominent local philanthropist behind a massive effort to increase the number of charter schools in Los Angeles, is protesting the appointment of Betsy DeVos as secretary of Education.

Broad sent a letter to U.S. senators Wednesday, asking them to vote against President Trump’s nominee.

“I believe she is unprepared and unqualified for the position,” Broad wrote. “Indeed, with Betsy DeVos at the helm of the U.S. Department of Education, much of the good work that has been accomplished to improve public education for all of America’s children could be undone.”
