U.S. President Donald Trump stated that he will issue a new version next week of his executive order banning citizens of seven mostly Muslim countries and all refugees from visiting the United States.
At a media briefing on Thursday, Trump once again blasted federal courts that blocked the implementation of his travel ban.
“We had a bad court, got a bad decision,” Trump said of the judicial actions that temporarily stopped his immigration ban.
The immigration order, issued on Jan. 27, resulted in chaos at U.S. airports and sparked international protests and complaints from businesses.
The Trump administration asked for a pause on Thursday in proceedings by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which had sided with a lower court in halting Trump’s immigration ban.
He said his new order would seek to address the issues raised by the court, even as he attacked its reasoning.
“The new order is going to be very much tailored to what I consider to be a very bad decision,” Trump said.
