US President Donald Trump (it still feels kind of surreal saying that) has made good on his promise to halt entry from citizens of predominantly Muslim countries into the USA.

Last week, Trump signed an executive order barring entry into the US from only seven countries, leaving a few others out of the order, which is some pundits have described as a deliberate move on his part to secure business interests he has in the countries that aren’t targeted.

The executive order will last for 120 days and has already set off a series of protests against it.

In case you’re wondering which countries are affected and which ones aren’t, take a look at the map below.

The first seven are countries under the ban, the last four are ones that aren’t banned and where Trump has business links.
