The Note: If the Trump tapes exist

If there are tapes, what would they reveal?


--FEDERAL JUDGES TO HEAR APPEAL ON TRUMP'S REVISED TRAVEL BAN: Trump administration attorneys head back to a federal appeals court Monday seeking to reverse a judge’s March order that blocked the president’s second travel ban just hours before it was to go into effect -- a ruling the president called an “unprecedented judicial overreach” that made America “look weak.” The arguments to be heard Monday in Seattle -- before a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit –- follow U.S. District Court Judge Derrick K. Watson’s March 16 decision that thwarted implementation of the overhauled version of Trump’s controversial policy, which the administration contends is a vital component of a strategy to prevent potential terrorists from entering the country. ABC’s JAMES HILL and LAUREN PEARLE have more:


U.S. BELIEVES NORTH KOREA LAUNCHED KN-17 MISSILE. The U.S. believes the ballistic missile North Korea launched on Saturday was a KN-17 medium range missile and not a new intermediate range missile, as had been speculated. The launch marked the first successful test of the missile, three previous launches in April had ended in failure, explains ABC's LUIS MARTINEZ. The initial assessment by U.S. intelligence is that the missile launched by North Korea was a KN-17, a medium range ballistic missile, according to two U.S. officials.
