President Trump has promised a new executive order limiting travel, immigration and refugees. It was expected last week, but delayed as the White House discussed the proper way to proceed. Then it was expected earlier this week, but now the White House is indicating that it may be the end of the week.
President Trump will not sign a new travel ban until later in the week, a senior administration official told Fox News.
Trump was expected to sign a new refugee and immigration executive order Wednesday, one day after addressing lawmakers at a joint session of Congress, a senior administration official said.
Trump initially planned to sign the new order last week, but spokesman Sean Spicer said the president was holding off “to make sure that when we execute this, it’s done in a manner that’s flawless.”
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.”
