President Donald Trump continues to lament over his recent loss in court, writing on Twitter early Saturday that America's court system is "broken."
"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, referencing a recent Washington Times report.

The tweet comes after the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday ruled against Trump and upheld a temporary stay on his recent executive order on immigration and refugees that was put into effect by a Seattle-based federal district court judge late last Friday.
Following that decision, Trump immediately wrote on Twitter that he would continue to use the court system to defend the legality of his order.
"SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!" Trump wrote Thursday evening.

However, there were mixed signals from the Trump administration on Friday as to how they would proceed following the circuit court's ruling. White House chief of staff Reince Priebus said the administration was considering an appeal to the Supreme Court, while Trump himself told reporters aboard Air Force One that he is considering re-issuing his order.
However, one 9th Circuit Court of Appeals judge has said they want the entire circuit court to review its recent ruling. Typically, a panel of three judges from the circuit convene to hear an appeal. If the judge's request goes through, the entire 11 judge panel will review the ruling, which could lead to an entirely different outcome.
