U.S. President Donald Trump tells a White House news conference that, ''We'll be doing something very rapidly having to do with additional security for our country,'' when asked about his immigration policy and recent travel ban. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and U.S. President Donald Trump held a news conference at the White House on Friday (February 10). Trump answered reporters' questions regarding his recent travel ban. "We are going to do whatever is necessary to keep our country safe... we'll be doing something very rapidly having to do with additional security for our country. You'll be seeing that some time next week," said Trump. "In addition we will continue to go through the court process and ultimately I have no doubt that we'll win that particular case," he said. A U.S. appeal court's refusal to reinstate a temporary travel ban on refugees and citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries is a setback for Trump, but the government plans to fight back on multiple legal fronts. The White House is not ruling out the possibility of rewriting Trump's Jan. 27 order in light of the actions by a federal judge in Seattle and an appeals court in San Francisco putting the directive on hold, an administration official said. "There are tremendous threats to our country... we will not allow people into our country who are looking to do harm to our people," Trump said. During the two-day talks, Trump and Abe will look to cement a decades-old alliance between Japan and the United States that has been under strain because of the Republican's positions on trade and security. After talks in Washington, Trump and Abe will then fly to Palm Beach, Florida for a weekend stay at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort. The two are expected to play golf at one or two of Trump's golf courses in the area. Abe was the first foreign leader to meet with Trump at Trump Tower in New York after his surprise win in the November presidential election last year.
