Donald Trump sacks US attorney general Sally Yates for defiance over immigration ban - live

Donald Trump has fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she ordered Justice Department lawyers to stop defending the president's controversial immigration orders. 

Ms Yates, who was appointed by Mr Obama, said she was "not convinced that the executive order is lawful".

“I am responsible for ensuring that the positions we take in court remain consistent with this institution’s solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right,” Ms Yates wrote in a letter to Justice Department lawyers. “At present, I am not convinced that the defence of the executive order is consistent with these responsibilities.”
