President Trump: Travel Restriction is Common Sense

Defiant in the face of a federal court ruling that halted the implementation of his national security executive orders, President Trump said Tuesday he would see the case all the way to the Supreme Court if need be, saying the order is “common sense.”

“ISIS said, ‘We are going to infiltrate the United States and other countries through the migration.’ And then we’re not allowed to be tough on the people coming in? Explain that one,” Trump said.

Asked by a reporter if the case would go to the Supreme Court, Trump said: “It could… Hopefully, it doesn’t have to. It’s common sense.”

Trump also criticized media coverage of recent events, saying, “Stories that should be a positive story, when they make them totally negative – I understand the total dishonesty of the media.”

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals would hear the Trump administration’s appeal of a district judge’s ruling on Tuesday.
