Mayo Clinic

Roughly 80 doctors, scholars and staff members at Mayo Clinic have ties to the seven Muslim-majority countries outlined in President Trump's executive order.

Mayo Clinic, a renowned academic hospital, said 20 patients also may be affected by the travel ban. That's in addition to the 11 international patients from Johns Hopkins Medicine and nine patients from Cleveland Clinic who could face troubles, as STAT reported. Mayo Clinic is based in Rochester, Minnesota, but also has campuses in Arizona and Florida.

However, the system said in a statement it is "still unsure of how Mayo staff and their families who are traveling for personal reasons may be affected."

Why this matters: People from around the globe in need of complex care and procedures travel to U.S. academic medical centers. Trump's travel ban can keep patients from life-saving treatments, though the number of patients involved isn't big enough to be a financial hit to the clinics.

This debate was like the country: Everybody’s talking. Nobody’s listening. Nothing is learned. It’s a mess.

  • We were told President Trump would be savage. Turned out, that was a gross understatement. Even the moderator, Fox News' Chris Wallace, got bulldozed.

Why it matters: Honestly, who the hell knows?

Pundits react to a chaotic debate: “What a dark event we just witnessed”

The first presidential debate between President Trump and Joe Biden in Cleveland on Tuesday night was a shouting match, punctuated by interruptions and hallmarked by name-calling.

Why it matters: If Trump aimed to make the debate as chaotic as possible with a torrent of disruptions, he succeeded. Pundits struggled to make sense of what they saw, and it's tough to imagine that the American people were able to either.

Trump to far-right Proud Boys: "Stand back and stand by"

Asked to condemn white supremacist violence at the first presidential debate on Tuesday, President Trump said the far-right Proud Boys group should "stand back and stand by," before immediately arguing that violence in the U.S. "is not a right-wing problem. This is a left-wing problem."

Why it matters: Trump has repeatedly been accused of failing to condemn white nationalism and right-wing violence, despite the FBI's assessment that it's the most significant domestic terrorism threat that the country faces. The president has frequently associated antifa and the left-wing violence that has afflicted some U.S. cities with Biden, despite his condemnation of violent protests.
