Trump Calls Appeals Court Ruling Blocking His Executive Order a 'Political Decision'

The president said that his administration will "win the case."

“It’s a political decision, and we’re going to see them in court, and I look forward to doing it,” the president said

Trump echoed those remarks on social media, tweeting,"SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!"

“We have a situation where the security of our country is at stake, and it’s a very, very serious situation and so we look forward, as I just said, to seeing them in court,” Trump told reporters.

A three-judge panel ruled to keep a restraining order against Trump's controversial immigration action in place, according to court documents.

“We hold that the Government has not shown a likelihood of success on the merits of its appeal, nor has it shown that failure to enter a stay would cause irreparable injury, and we therefore deny its emergency motion for a stay,” the panel, from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, wrote in the decision Thursday.

Trump expressed confidence in his administration's case, saying they would "win."

“It’s a decision that we’ll win, in my opinion, very easily,” he later added.
