    US President Donald Trump on Tuesday once again stressed the need to introduce a temporary travel ban for the citizens of "dangerous" countries.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Monday, Trump advocated for the original form of the travel ban, "not the watered down, politically correct version" of it.

    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 signed on January 27, citizens of Iraq were not included in the second one.

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