(JNS) The Trump administration is in the stages of officially designating the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group, announced White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.

Sanders confirmed a New York Times report, citing officials familiar with the matter, that the United States was in the process of making the designation, which would enact “wide-ranging economic and travel sanctions” on anyone doing business with the organization.

Visiting the White House earlier this month, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi asked U.S. President Donald Trump to make the move, which the president “responded affirmatively,” saying “it would make sense.”
