When it comes to the U.S. executive order issuing a 90-day temporary ban on new visas from six countries, “we have to separate political theater from political reality,” Michael Dominguez,  MGM Resorts International senior vice president and chief sales officer, told CNTV.

When you look at the data, international travel to the U.S. is actually on the upswing, Dominguez said. The ban affects a small number of countries — six — and is temporary, he added. “It’s important for us to be responsible in how we actually communicate this and how we report it, so people understand what it is and what it isn’t.”
