President Trump Holds a Press Conference

President Donald Trump said he will sign an executive order next week that updates his contentious January 27th ban on travellers and refugees from seven majority-Muslim countries. Last week, a federal appeals court ruled to keep a stay on the president’s travel ban, which has been openly opposed by leaders in the technology industry including Google and Facebook.

The new executive order will address the legal pitfalls that have passed the first travel ban, Trump said at a press conference today.
