Trump vows to restore travel ban on Islamic nations if elected president in 2024




Donald Trump vows to restore travel ban on Islamic nations, prohibiting citizens of those countries from entering the US, if he is elected president in 2024.

The former US president said during a speech in New Hampshire “I will restore my travel ban to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of our country. You saw what happened. Four years… You saw that right? We were very tough on that. We don’t want our buildings blown up.”

Trump’s rally in New Hampshire marked his first return in an attempt to gain votes since his legal troubles with an indictment in New York.

Trump had instated the controversial travel ban since his very first week in office in 2017, when he had restricted travel from seven Muslim nations – Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

Critics claimed the ban was discriminatory against Muslims, while Trump administration argued that the ban was necessary for national security and the White House had continued to justify it saying it was not a ban on Muslims. Initially there were widespread protests, and many legal challenges launched against the ban. However, despite opposition, the Supreme Court had ruled in favor of the ban in 2018.
