That's why it includes such CEOs as Tesla's Elon Musk.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is going after the "horror show" known as the diversity visa lottery program. His description of it is pure fiction.

A question for my fellow Southerners: Which South are you from? I don’t mean which part of the South. I mean, what kind of South.
