Trump Bans European Flights
Trump Bans European Flights
  Late Wednesday night President Donald Trump suspended passenger travel between the U.S. and Europe for the next 30 days, beginning at midnight on Friday the 13th. United Kingdom was not included in the ban.
  His comments referred to air cargo in the ban but that statement was quickly walked back by the White House and the President himself shortly after the nationally televised address.
  “Trade will in no way be affected by the 30-day restriction on travel from Europe. The restriction stops people, not goods,” President Trump tweeted.
  The U.S. Department of Homeland Security said that entry of foreign nationals who have been in certain European countries at any point during the 14 days prior to their scheduled arrival in the United States will be forbidden.
  The banned countries include Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
  DHS said, that Americans who have visited the banned countries will be in for “enhanced screening” once they figure out a way to return to the U.S.
  United spokeswoman, Leslie Scott told reporters:
  "We will comply with the administration's announcement."
  “The U.K. exemption opens a lot of possibilities for connecting flights to the continent,” USA Today reported.
