Trump's Muslim Ban Not Reinstated After Appeals Court Ruling


President Donald Trump has a new unlikely opponent: the three-judge federal appeals court panel who just unanimously ruled against reinstating his infamous Muslim ban.

After Thursday's ruling, the federal appeals court will not be reinstating Trump's January 27 executive order to issue a "travel ban" against seven predominantly Muslim countries.

The people of the seven countries Trump originally restricted from entering the United States for 90 days include the people of Iran, Yemen, Libya, Sudan, Syria, Somalia and Iraq.

The enforcement of the controversial executive order now remains on hold.

According to NBC News, the court ruled against reinstating the ban due to the fact the Justice Department failed to demonstrate how keeping the ban on hold would inflict "irreparable injury."

Shortly after the news broke, President Trump immediately jumped on Twitter to address the matter, obnoxiously tweeting,

That's exactly what I jokingly suggested he'd say.

Here's President Trump's tweet following the unanimous decision not to reinstate his controversial Muslim ban.

Judging by the excessive and unnecessary capitalization, I'm just going to go ahead and guess he is LIVID.

After his surprisingly brief Twitter rant, the 70-year-old real estate mogul and reality TV star spoke to reporters about the court's ruling, saying,

Trump seems awfully determined to continue "temporarily" violating the rights of nearly 213 million people. However, thanks to the three-judge federal appeals court panel, the ban sits on ice.

NBC's report states the panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a statement on the decision, which reads,

Aside from teaching Americans exactly how complex the inner workings of government structure actually is, Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson believes the court's decision also demonstrates President Trump is nowhere near above the law.

So, where do we go from here?


Well, apparently, Trump wants to take the legal battle back to the courtroom, but Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) has a better idea.

In a statement regarding Trump's so-called "travel ban," Schumer said,

Here's Schumer's tweet.

I can just imagine Trump's 140-character, fully capitalized response to that.
