The "Trump travel ban(s)" (sometimes called the "Trump Muslim ban(s)") is the colloquial name for executive actions taken by Donald Trump as President of the United States in 2017.[1][2] The actions include two executive orders for restrictions on citizens of seven (first executive order) or six (second executive order) Muslim-majority countries. A third action, done by a presidential proclamation, restricts entry to the U.S. by citizens of eight countries; six of these countries are predominantly Muslim. Below is a list of the three actions.

In the days after the first executive order was issued, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer objected to the characterization of the executive order as a "travel ban".[3] However, Trump himself referred to his actions as a "travel ban".[4] In early May 2017, Spicer was asked by a reporter "If this White House is no longer calling this a 'Muslim ban'...why does the president's website still explicitly call for ‘preventing Muslim immigration?'" After the question was asked, the text "DONALD J. TRUMP STATEMENT ON PREVENTING MUSLIM IMMIGRATION" was noted to have been removed from Trump's campaign website.[5]

All three travel bans have been challenged in court.
