Trump prepares to issue new travel ban

Late on Tuesday night, multiple outlets reported that the White House chose to hold off on issuing the new executive order after seeing the positive reviews for Trump's impersonation of a competent president.

Former CIA Director John Brennan said Sunday in a televised interview that President Trump's proposed executive order banning travel from seven predominantly Muslim nations was not going to help fight terrorism in "any significant way". The paper also wrote that learning from the previous experience, the White House administration could implement the order at a date later than the signing date.

Four officials said to the news agency that the decision followed pressure from the Pentagon and State Department.

The executive order was nonetheless struck down by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, leading to a furious response from the president.




The executive order is expected to be released later this week. A senior administration official told CNN that they don't want to undercut coverage of the president's speech.

The new order is likely to exempt existing visa holders from the listed countries - the state department had said 60,000 people were impacted by the earlier order - which will be down by one to six now: Syria, Iran, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia and Libya.

The new order includes other changes as well. In the initial days of implementation of the order, even the green card holders and visa holders from the seven nations were barred from entering the country.
