Donald Trump pledges to reinstate travel ban, appeals judge's decision
Trump has vowed to reinstate his controversial travel ban, which he said is "for the safety of the country".
US President Donald Trump's administration has appealed a federal judge's order that blocked the US president's order that ban on entry of citizens from seven Muslim-majority nations.
Trump has vowed to reinstate his controversial travel ban "for the safety of our country", as visa holders, affected by the action, scramble to board US-bound flights.
"We'll win. For the safety of our country, we'll win," Trump told reporters in Florida.
Referring to U.S. District Judge James Robart as “this so-called judge,” Trump on Saturday wrote on social media that the ruling was “ridiculous and will be overturned!”
“When a country is no longer able to say who can, and who cannot come in & out, especially for reasons of safety & security—big trouble!” Trump added.
“Because the ban was lifted by a judge, many very bad and dangerous people may be pouring into our country,” Mr. Trump said on his Twitter account. “A terrible decision.”
