Federal Appeals Court Upholds Block on Trump Travel Ban

Updated on

President Donald Trump suffered his most significant setback yet in a bitter fight over his revised travel ban as a federal appeals court slammed it as being “steeped in animus.”

The court in Richmond, Virginia, refused on Thursday to lift a nationwide block on Trump’s attempt to ban travel from six mostly Muslim countries on national security grounds. The judges used especially harsh language in a 79-page decision that is certain to plague the president in other courtroom battles over the directive.
