How Trump's Own Tweets Can Tank His Travel Ban

Updated on

President Donald Trump revised his embattled travel ban to address arguments being made at the U.S. Supreme Court that it would expire Wednesday under its original wording.

The White House announcement comes as the Supreme Court considers whether to revive the stalled ban, which would suspend entry into the U.S. by people from six mostly Muslim nations. Under the change, the 90-day ban won’t start until court orders currently blocking it are lifted.
