Hours before it was to take effect, President Donald Trump's revised travel ban was put on hold Wednesday by a federal judge in Hawaii after hearing arguments that the executive order discriminates on the basis of nationality.
The ruling came as opponents renewed their legal challenges across the country, asking judges in three states to block the executive order that targets people from six predominantly Muslim countries.
Trump responded to the ruling during a rally on Wednesday.
"This ruling makes us look weak, which by the way we no longer are, believe me," Trump said, vowing to "fight this terrible ruling."
Promising "we're going to win it," Trump said he would take the case to the Supreme Court if need be.
In fact, Trump — who called the current order a "watered down" version of his first attempt — suggested he might want to return to fighting for those stronger travel measures.
