Donald Trump is speaking at a campaign rally in Nashville, Tennessee, and he just slammed a court ruling blocking his revised travel ban as “an unprecedented judicial overreach.”
Trump called the ruling “terrible” and pledged to take the legal fight all the way to the Supreme Court.
“We’re going to take our case as far as it needs to go, including all the way to the Supreme Court. And we’re going to win. I think we ought to go back to the first ban, and go all the way. That’s what I wanted to do in the first place.”
The comments are Trump’s first since a federal judge in Hawaii dealt him a major blow by placing a nationwide hold on the new travel ban, which was set to go into effect Thursday.
Trump suggested the ruling was politically motivated and “makes us look weak” in the fight against terrorism.
Trump says his 2nd travel ban = a “watered-down version” of 1st ban—he wants to go back to 1st ban
