The newly confirmed Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly, who would be leading the order's changes, was on a conference call getting his first briefing of Trump's travel ban order. Not even halfway into the briefing, another person on the call looked up at the TV and said, "The President is signing the executive order that we’re discussing." Trump did not take his order through any vetting process. He surprised his staff by signing it on TV at the same time they were first hearing the details of the order. This cause global chaos at airports since customs and border control did not know what to do.
