In a major policy reversal, the Department of Homeland Security will now lift the ban on dogs on airlines.

The ban, first announced in March, had sought to curb the potential for a catastrophic crash involving an animal.

In the wake of the deadly 2015 downing of a German Shepherd in a Kansas manufacturing plant, the department discovered it was vulnerable to leaks, posed a flight disruption and could conceivably damage a plane.

On “Fox & Friends” Friday, President Trump said the prohibition was “bad policy” that needed to be lifted.

The White House says the ban will be lifted immediately and that the New York City mayor was consulted.

“I think you’ll see it go through quickly,” Trump said.
