The Trump administration said it will replace the travel ban rather than appeal it


President Trump's administration said it will revise the controversial travel ban rather than have it reviewed by an appeals court.

The administration said in a court filing on Thursday that it will replace the ban with a new one in the near future. 

During a press conference Thursday, Trump said he would issue a new executive order that "will comprehensively protect our country." The order will be "tailored" to the court decision that suspended his original travel ban. 

During the press conference, Trump said the rollout of his ban was "smooth."

The administration attacked the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals' decision in Thursday's court filing, saying the three-judge panel misunderstood the scope of the order. 

The appeals court had asked the Trump administration and Washington and Minnesota to file arguments by Thursday on whether more judges should hear the case.

Trump's administration argued the courts did not have authority to review his executive orders. The courts rejected that argument. 

Monopoly removed the thimble token. For some reason, this upset a lot of people.
