Donald Trump’s wish to prevent citizens from six Muslim-majority countries from entering the US has suffered another set back, after a judge put his revised travel ban on hold.
Derrick Watson, a US district judge in Hawaii, ordered the temporary stay just hours before Mr Trump’s action was due to come into effect at midnight. The nationwide ruling means that people should not be impacted by the order.
At a rally in Nashville President Trump called the move by the judge was an “unprecedented judicial overreach” and said he was ready to take the case “as far as it needs to go” including to the Supreme Court.
“A judge has just blocked our executive order on travel and refugees coming into our country from certain countries”, Mr Trump said.
Also the proposed travel ban has drawn protests across the US.
