A European Union (EU) diplomat said on Thursday, the EU officials were not notified about US President Trump’s travel ban decision ahead of time, per Reuters.
“There was no heads-up, no coordination as the president claimed,” the diplomat said.

European Council President Charles Michel said that they will assess the US travel ban situation later today.
