…Take deep breath…this is not victory…Trump will retaliate and quickly…???
A federal appeals court has turned down President Donald Trump’s attempt to revive his controversial travel ban executive order.
A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously rejected the Justice Department’s request to lift a Seattle-based judge’s restraining order that blocked authorities from carrying out the limits Trump sought to impose on travel to the U.S. by refugees and by citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries.
The White House could take the issue to the Supreme Court, but the prospects for such an appeal are uncertain due in part to the high court being short a justice and split evenly between Democratic and Republican appointed justices.
…That did not take long … President Donald Trump issued a defiant response to a federal appeals court ruling that refused to revive his controversial travel ban executive order, tweeting within minutes that the safety of the nation hangs in the balance.
"SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!" Trump tweeted.
