The Trump administration will propose new powers for the federal government, including the power to suspend or cancel the travel ban and other federal programs.
The proposal is being made in a memo to Cabinet secretaries that will be released Tuesday by the Office of Management and Budget.
It includes a proposal to suspend the Trump administration’s so-called ‘global gag rule,’ which prevents foreign nationals and companies from entering the United States if they’re suspected of terrorism.
The global gag rule was implemented under former President Barack Obama in 2015.
It prohibits certain companies from doing business with the United Nations, which is headquartered in New York.
The memo says the government can now suspend or halt the gag rule “without regard to the merits of the case, in any particular circumstance.”
It adds that the gag order can also be revoked.
The Trump government has been considering how to use the power in response to the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino.
In the memo, the Office says the new gag order could “include an emergency exception that would permit the executive branch to exercise its authority in the face of a threat to national security, including a declaration of a national emergency.”
Trump has repeatedly expressed frustration with the federal response to climate change and the rise of the Islamic State group, a U.S.-based group that has carried out attacks across the globe.
He has proposed a $1 trillion reduction in the federal deficit, including an increase in spending on health care, education and infrastructure.
The government is also considering what to do with some of the money from the so-to-called so-far-undisclosed-from-Congress (SALT) and sequestration cuts, which take effect in December.
The budget is also being updated to reflect the budget for fiscal year 2018.
The White House did not respond to a request for comment.
