PRESIDENT Donald Trump has attacked a US court for halting what he called a “watered-down version” of his travel ban.

Mr Trump told supporters a district judge in Hawaii had halted his order, which temporarily suspends the US refugee programme and bars the entry of people from certain Muslim-majority countries.

The president told the campaign-style rally in Nashville, Tennessee, that the ruling is “unprecedented judicial overreach” and “makes us look weak”.

He said he is going to fight the decision and take it all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary.

The president told the rally: “We’re going to win. We’re going to keep our citizens safe. The danger is clear. The law is clear. The need for my executive order is clear.”
