After spurring protests, drawing international outrage, and creating mass confusion over the weekend, President Donald Trump’s edict temporarily banning travel from seven Muslim-majority countries is causing some companies to rethink business trips.

According to a survey conducted by the Association of Corporate Travel Executives, 36% of respondents said their company would reduce travel “somewhat.” A smaller number — 3% — said travel would drop significantly.

    Typical buffoonish over reaction. Most people don't travel right now to those 7 countries on the list of baned travel anyway. Also it's just tempoary just long enough for this administration to put in place a better vetting process for people coming from a region of high suspected terror activity. More media sponsored hysteria or really the media terrorising the American public LOL ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„
