    US President Donald Trump urged on Monday the necessity of a travel ban in its original form, not a "watered down, politically correct version" which the US Justice Department had submitted to the country’s Supreme Court.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – On Thursday, the US Justice Department petitioned the Supreme Court to revive the president’s executive order that bars travelers from six states for 90 days from entering the United States.

    On March 6, Trump introduced a revised version of the temporary travel ban concerning nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Unlike his first executive order, citizens of Iraq were not included in the second one.

    On June 3, the US Supreme Court announced a deadline of June 12 for the challengers of Trump’s travel ban to respond to the Justice Department’s emergency request to revive the travel ban.
