Vice President Mike Pence has insisted there was no "confusion" following President Trump's shock travel ban announcement.
"I don't think there was confusion," Pence told CNN's New Day on Thursday.
"The President took another historic step, just like he did in January with China," Pence said of earlier travel restrictions.
"The epicenter of the coronavirus has shifted from China to Europe," he added.
"The health team came into the Oval Office, presented (the latest information) to the President, and he made the decision on the spot after hearing from all sides that the best thing we could do is suspend all travel," said Pence.
