Trump quoted a story from the conservative outlet The Washington Times. Trump tweeted. "77% of refugees allowed into US since travel reprieve hail from seven suspect countries".

They are interviewed, fingerprinted and screened via further FBI, Department of Defense and Homeland Security databases.

One of those options might involve rewriting the controversial executive order, or replacing it with a new one, to sidestep the legal issues which have caused the travel ban to become held up in the courts.

Supporters of the ban have criticized these efforts, arguing that the surge in refugees has made the country vulnerable to terrorism.

Mr Trump said in two tweets: "I am reading that the great border WALL will cost more than the government originally thought, but I have not gotten involved in the design or negotiations yet".

However, Trump on Saturday said he is considering signing a "brand new" executive order by next week to temporarily bar citizens of seven Muslim-majority nations from entering America. "When I do, just like with the F-35 FighterJet or the Air Force One Program, price will come WAY DOWN!"
