Iran says US travel ban is 'racist' and 'unfair'

The court said the administration can block travelers from Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Iran and Yemen unless they can prove a "bona fide relationship" with a person or entity in the United States.

The travel ban restricts travel from six Muslim-majority countries in the Middle East and North Africa.

"The Trump administration has said this is a great win", said Bauer.

@RealDonaldTrump Rages Against #AmazonWashingtonPost, Claims Amazon Pays No Taxes, Fake 'Time' Cover
It's unlikely Bezos will be too fazed by Trump's most recent tweet, given the stellar year the tech innovator has had so far. Bezos, along with Apple CEO Tim Cook, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Google Chairman Eric Schmidt were spotted on camera.

In an apparent reference to Saudi Arabia, Zarif said the travel ban punishes people who have never been "involved in terrorism" while citizens of other countries involved in past terrorist acts were not affected. Effectively, this means that the Court tossed the cases brought by universities attempting to claim that foreign nationals who might want to enter the United States must be allowed to do so, but left in place specific injunctions against preventing importation of relatives of American citizens from overseas.

Shortly after the court's ruling, the State Department notified all USA diplomatic posts of the decision and advised them to await instructions that would be forthcoming by the self-imposed implementation deadline on Thursday, according to officials familiar with the situation.

Iran has denounced the recent US Supreme Court ruling allowing President Donald Trump's contentious Muslim ban to be partly reinstated, saying the United States is turning a blind eye to the real culprits behind acts of terror on its soil.

Oil prices hit seven-month lows on global oversupply
If we see Bearish US Oil statistics this week, we could see a test of 45 on Brent Crude , and 40 and maybe 39 for WTI. Nigeria's crude exports are set to surpass 2 million barrels per day (bpd) in August, the highest in 17 months.

The order puts on hold much of the lower court rulings that said Trump overstepped his authority and unconstitutionally targeted Muslims. "I want people who can love the United States and all of its citizens, and who will be hardworking and productive".

According to the verdict, restrictions on the entry of 6 Islamic countries' citizens do not affect the rights of Americans, and therefore can be introduced by the president.
