President Donald Trump is expected to announce on Friday that travelers checking into hotels in the United States from January 12 to January 18 will no longer be required to have a valid travel check for the duration of their stay.
This means that people will be able to fly home without needing to check in.
However, the change will not affect travelers visiting countries with visa restrictions or who do not qualify for the Visa Waiver Program.
“I want to thank the Department of Homeland Security for allowing the change in policy,” Trump said on Thursday, according to the Associated Press.
While Trump did not say what kind of business or leisure travel he was proposing, he did say that the change would help the economy. “
This will allow people to fly back home without having to re-check in for their trip and allow us to continue to welcome more American workers back to the country.”
While Trump did not say what kind of business or leisure travel he was proposing, he did say that the change would help the economy.
The president has frequently touted his desire to boost American workers’ salaries and get them back to work in the years after a presidential election.
Trump’s plan is the latest in a series of moves he has made to boost the economy, which is in need of a boost as Congress works to pass a $1 trillion infrastructure bill and a major tax reform bill.
Trump was expected to sign the measure, which would cut the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 20 percent.
