President Donald Trump has already made it clear he doesn’t welcome visitors from certain countries to the United States. But how does he feel about United States citizens traveling abroad?
Although Trump hasn’t declared places, such as Iraq, Iran, and Libya off-limits to Americans, the U.S. Department of State does strongly discourage people from traveling to these countries, along with 38 others around the world.
How does a country end up on the travel warnings list? It’s not because of the way the president feels about them. Rather, according to the State Department, they issue a warning because of factors, such as an “unstable government, civil war, ongoing intense crime or violence, or frequent terrorist attacks.”
Some of the places the U.S. government is concerned about should be avoided for obvious reasons.
