The ban stands

The Supreme Court gave a green light Tuesday to President Donald Trump's immigration travel ban against predominantly Muslim countries. After the ruling, Trump tweeted "Wow!" and called it "a tremendous victory for the American people." The ACLU called it "a dark day for American jurisprudence and the values we hold dear." The deeply divided court upheld the ban as a legitimate exercise of executive branch authority. Chief Justice John Roberts said there was "a sufficient national security justification." The court's four liberal justices dissented, with Justice Sonia Sotomayor writing that "a reasonable observer would conclude that the proclamation was motivated by anti-Muslim animus." The ruling stoked polarization on Capitol Hill – and much of America – where partisan tensions run deep. Here are the high court's top decisions of 2018.

Trade war of words

Your move, Harley-Davidson. After the iconic motorcycle maker announced it would move some production overseas in response to European tariffs, President Donald Trump scolded the firm and threatened it with higher taxes. "If they move, watch, it will be the beginning of the end – they surrendered, they quit! The Aura will be gone and they will be taxed like never before!" Trump tweeted Tuesday. Trump has championed Harley from the beginning of his presidency, calling the brand a "true American icon." But the company warned that Trump's tariffs could end up hurting U.S. jobs.

Not your average campaign ads

In one ad, a House contender from Illinois recalled trying to fight off the molester who crept into her childhood bedroom. In another, a Texas Air Force veteran running for Congress talked about her family's history with domestic violence. Women running for governor in Maryland and Wisconsin breastfed their infant daughters while cameras rolled. As female candidates run in record numbers in this year's midterm elections, they also are changing traditional campaign scripts — taking on once-taboo topics and pushing gender to the forefront of their campaigns. Speaking of elections, seven states are holding primaries or runoff elections on Tuesday. Here are the races to watch.

Because, kids

Good news for parents in Boston, Cincinnati or Philadelphia. Those are the top three cities in the annual Best Children's Hospitals list  put out by U.S. News & World Report for the second straight year. Boston Children's Hospital topped the honor roll, followed by Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. The magazine also ranked hospitals in several specialties, including pediatric cancer, cardiology and orthopedics. See the full rankings here.
