Personal electronics banned on flights to the US from 13 countries
All personal electronics, apart from cellphones, have been banned on flights to the US from 13 countries. Royal Jordanian Airlines, the national airline of Jordan, confirmed the news in an advisory posting on Twitter today. TSA confirmed Royal Jordanian’s initial statement, but referred any further comment to the Department of Homeland Security. DHS would not comment, provide details or reasons when asked for comment by BGR.

5. Update fromDU
Here are two possible reasons for the ban.
1)He knows the courts will never uphold his Muslim ban. So this is another way to accomplish it. If people can't have their laptops they won't fly.
2)It's racist. This is to prevent Muslims from getting any work done on the plane. This will hinder their ability to do business in the US. That's why it doesn't apply to US airlines.
