President Donald Trump defended his “good” travel policy on Saturday, saying he’s not “happy” with it and calling the president a “nice guy.”
Trump was responding to a reporter’s question about whether he was “happy with” the travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries.
The president told reporters at the White House that he was trying to make sure that the United States “gets along with everybody” and that the travel restrictions were “a good thing.”
Trump’s travel ban has been widely criticized by civil rights groups and others, including a bipartisan group of lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives that has introduced legislation to overturn it.
The executive order was issued by U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres last week and requires countries to stop accepting refugees, as well as those who are not U.K. citizens.
It also bars citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the U .
The U.F.O. ban was originally implemented in late February, and the first refugees to enter the country were allowed into the country in mid-March.
