No reasons were given publicly for the president not issuing the new order on Wednesday, but reports indicated the White House felt the message from the well-received address to U.S. congress might be drowned out or mitigated in the least by the criticism they felt would follow the new order, going by what happened earlier. The American people did not take the ban well, coming out in droves to protest the order at airports across the nation.
A federal appeals court upheld the stay while the courts settle the legality of the ban.
He noted that they were relieved when the order was suspended.
"We want the (executive order) to have its own 'moment, '" a White House official told CNN. The officials said that Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen will stay on the list, but Iraq was removed because the country is a crucial partner in the fight against the Islamic State.
Meanwhile, CNN's White House reporter tweeted that Trump may not sign the revised executive order on Wednesday as was being expected.

Negotiations on a long-term deal are expected to continue and terms could be agreed upon before the start of the 2017 season. If both sides fail to agree to a new contract by that date, then Bell will play under the franchise tag for the 2017 season.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorised to discuss the order before it is signed.
Four officials say the decision follows pressure from the Pentagon and State Department, the AP reported.
The new executive order will make clear that legal permanent residents (otherwise known as green card holders) are excluded from any travel ban, and those with validly issued visas will also be exempt from the ban.
Trump is expected to sign the new order on Wednesday.
