U.S. court blocks Trump’s order on temporary travel ban

Age

President Donald Trump’s executive order temporarily banning travel to the United States by citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries has been blocked by a federal judge in Hawaii.

The decision came on Thursday afternoon.

It’s the latest legal setback for Trump, who was supposed to sign an executive order that would bar travel from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Trump’s order was blocked by the courts twice before.

It was blocked in March for violating the 14th Amendment to the U.N. charter, which guarantees equal protection under the law.

Trump has said he would have upheld that order.

In the meantime, the White House said the president is reviewing the ruling.
