    The largest school board in Canada said it won't be booking future trips to the United States, citing "uncertainty" surrounding President Donald Trump's latest travel restrictions, NBC News reported.

    The Toronto District School Board announced it would bar new trips to the U.S. because of "uncertainty surrounding these new restrictions — specifically with regards to who may be impacted and when," John Malloy, director of education for the school board, said in a statement Thursday.

    "We do not make this decision lightly, but given the uncertainty of these new travel restrictions and when they may come into effect, if at all, we strongly believe that our students should not be placed into these situations of potentially being turned away at the border," Malloy said in the statement.
