President Trump has confirmed reports of his intent to expand the number of countries on the travel ban list.
According to The Hill:
President Trump on Tuesday confirmed he plans to expand his controversial travel ban that bars citizens of certain countries from entering the United States.
Trump told The Wall Street Journal in an interview on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland that he is looking to add more countries, though he would not say which ones.
The president’s comments confirm an Associated Press report from earlier this month.
Any additions or alterations to the travel ban would draw immediate legal challenges.
The current ban was upheld by the Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision.
