The White House also made some clarifications: Green card holders and lawful permanent residents from those seven countries will not be denied entry.
Speaking after the incident, Donald Trump's Press Secretary Sean Spicer said: 'To assume that just because of someone's age and gender that they don't pose a threat would be misguided and wrong'.

"We are also working closely with airline partners to prevent travelers who would not be granted entry under the executive orders from boarding worldwide flights to the U.S. Therefore, we do not anticipate that further individuals traveling by air to the United States will be affected".
