The seven countries identified in President Donald Trump's travel ban were ones first identified by the Obama administration as in need of a "further" vetting, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Sunday.

In an interview on ABC News' "This Week," Spicer said the ban was both justified and necessary, and what it "says is that that we're going to protect our country and our people."

There are 46 other nations with Muslims that are not part of this," he said. "These seven countries were identified by the Obama people as needing further travel scrutiny."


"The Obama administration put these first and foremost … need to have further travel restrictions based on the information we have," he said.

Trump has defended his executive order issued Friday as "not a Muslim ban."
