President Trump panned the U.S. legal system as being “broken” after a three-judge panel on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled this week to keep a restraining order on his travel ban in place while the courts consider the merits of Washington state’s case against the ban.

“Our legal system is broken! “77% of refugees allowed into U.S. since travel reprieve hail from seven suspect countries.” (WT) SO DANGEROUS!”, Trump tweeted early Saturday morning, citing a report from the Washington Times.

However, Trump’s ban is getting another look as soon as next week after it was revealed late Friday that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will vote on whether the full federal appeals court should vote on lifting the block on Trump’s executive order that bars citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries in the Middle East and North Africa with high terror risk.

Right after the federal appeals court made its initial decision on Thursday, Trump vowed, “SEE YOU IN COURT,” on Twitter.

The president also suggested on Friday he might consider a “brand new order” on immigration and refugees as a way around the courts’ block of his travel ban.
