WASHINGTON – US President Donald Trump vowed to draft a new order to ban migrants from majority-Muslim nations after his initial executive order was halted by court.

Talking to newsmen on Friday, he insisted that he had the law on his side despite losing legal battle in federal court in quick succession. He reiterated that security concerns may necessitate a swift response than legal channels would allow.
‘The unfortunate part is that it takes time statutorily, but we will win that battle. We also have a lot of other options, including just filing a brand new order,’ he said, adding that the order can be enforced next week.
“We need speed for reasons of security, so it very well could be,” Trump said when asked if his plan was to have a new measure drafted.
“We’ll be going forward and continuing to do things to make our country safe. It will happen rapidly,” he told newsmen after meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
“We will not allow people into our country who are looking to do harm,” he reiterated.
He asserted that he would allow lots of people into US that will love Americans and do good for the country.
It is relevant to mention that a US appeals court upheld the decision by a Seattle judge putting an end to the January 27 executive order.
On the other hand, soon after the decision, Trump who was left in fumes took to his traditional mode of communication Twitter to express in frustration and interestingly the severity of his anger can be noted from the capital letters, he used in his tweet.
SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!
