US President Donald Trump is considering expanding his controversial travel ban to seven more countries, five of which are majority Muslim and two that are not, according to reports citing insider sources in Washington. What it means is that certain types of visas, like business or visitor visas, or maybe government officials, will be banned from entering the country.
The president commented on the travel ban during an interview with reporter Andrew Restuccia during his trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Nigeria, for example, Africa's largest economy and most populous country, is a USA anti-terrorism partner and has a large diaspora residing in the United States.
Politico reports that an announcement is expected on Monday January 27, exactly three years after Trump signed the original travel ban on January 27, 2017, just a week into his tenure. The unidentified administration officials have also stated that the list isn't final.

The source of the coronavirus is unknown, but it could spread easily as even adults lack basic habits to protect themselves. CDC officials at the airports will be examining travelers for fever and symptoms like coughing or difficulty breathing.
Under the current version of the ban, citizens of Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, and some Venezuelan officials and their relatives are blocked from obtaining a large range of United States immigrant and non-immigrant visas.
The plans, which are still under review, are based on interagency input from the departments of Homeland Security and State, as well as the White House, according to the official.
The administration has said its policy restricting travel is necessary to prevent potential acts of terrorism, as countries on the list don't adequately vet their travellers to America. Chad, a West African country, was removed from the list in April 2018.
Citizens of the countries can apply for waivers to the ban, but such instances are exceedingly rare.
