The block remains for now, but Trump will likely go to the Supreme Court now to appeal. I don't know how much different things will be there, but if the two processes before set any precedent (if it remains valid) then his appeal will fail here too. Hopefully that is the case because this EO not only has been sloppy but is utterly ridiculous not to mention inhuman even.

If you want to be technical, the president does have the power to do this under one of the sections in USC 1182 f. Considering most of the court is Conservative (when we add his appointee for this), there's a good chance it will not be a fail.

AND!!! One more in the list of Alternative Facts:

According to Donald Trump in his speech at Tampa Bay, the media doesn't report terrorism.........

Actually, I think he did this for a different reason other than pure dogmatism. By saying this lie, he's getting the left to talk about terrorism. This benefits him because talking about terror stands to positively influence the opinion of the travel ban.

Just in case my friend when I said "Right.......And so we have more Twitter shitstorms." It was meant to signal "change of topic" '-'

Polls aren't absolute, true, but I'd like to underline that online polls can be quite shady. During campaign period I saw a lot, and I tell you a lot of polls that gave Trump and overwhelming victory against Clinton during each of the debates. But those sites were usually shared on reddit, reduced to Conservative circles or downright allowing you to vote multiple times, i.e. they just were poorly made and had a very selective populace. I take the same phenomenon is happening here since the more traditional, but still much more scientifically correct polls, showed Hillary destroyed Trump in all of the debates. Also the article cites that the differences with the possible "shy Trump" voters are minimal.

As for what he reacted to.........prolly that polls don't see the Muslim Ban in a favourable light, is what I think. Given he says "FAKE MEDIA news", I'm inclined to think this is the case.

I saw it more of trying to invite another discussion with another person, but that's beyond the point now. I can see your point there, but it isn't something to throw out lightly.

 

And honestly, people would be more in favor if he just didn't made an Executive Order so willy-nilly and poorly written. No matter what, it should not affect people who are already here legally, abridge American citizens or residents from coming back home after visiting their families or detain and deport green card holders and other such non-sense. But I digress.
