WASHINGTON (AP) -

President Donald Trump is weighing the next steps of his controversial travel ban.
  
Trump's 90-day ban on visitors from six Muslim-majority countries is set to expire Sunday.
  
The Wall Street Journal first reported Friday that the administration is preparing to announce new, more targeted restrictions that would affect more countries than those included in the president's March 6 order.
  
The restrictions would vary by country, based on the perceived threat posed by each one.
  
Trump's executive order applied to citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen and sparked protests and lawsuits across the country.
  
The White House says it is working to ensure "we only admit those who can be properly vetted and will not pose a threat to national security or public safety."
