ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis welcomed Jordan's King Abdullah to the Pentagon on Monday. The visit comes just days after U.S. President Donald Trump's executive order banning immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries. It also temporarily halted the entry of refugees.
