Donald Trump Faces Travel Bans to Dozens of Countries After Felony Conviction in the U.S.

Must read

Donald Trump may be barred from entering dozens of countries with strict policies on admitting individuals with criminal records following his conviction on 34 felony charges, including tax fraud and falsification of financial records. The former president of the United States will be restricted from accessing a total of 37 countries that prohibit the entry of criminals, complicating his activities should he win the November elections, as he would need to apply for special permission and rely on those governments to make an exception for him.

Included in this list, which features Cuba, are other significant U.S. allies such as the United Kingdom and Canada. Notably, Canada is set to host the G7 Summit in 2025. According to the World Population Review portal, 38 countries—including the United States—implement restrictive policies on individuals with criminal records attempting to enter their territory, even for visits. Other important nations in U.S. foreign relations appearing on the list include Mexico, China, and Israel.

Last week, Trump was found guilty by a New York jury on 34 charges related to covering up a sex scandal that threatened his rise to the White House in 2016, which prosecutors deemed a deception of the American people. The 12 New Yorkers who made up the jury voted unanimously, eliminating the possibility of a hung jury in what was the first criminal trial against a former president. The sentence from Judge Juan Merchan will be announced on July 11.
