NASHVILLE, Tenn.--During his visit to Nashville on Wednesday, President Donald Trump was critical of a ruling by a U.S. District Judge in Hawaii's decision to put the revised travel ban on hold.

The ruling was announced while the president was on his way to Nashville's Municipal Auditorium for a rally event.

In the ruling, Judge Derrick Watson called into question the executive order's argument does not target Muslims because the six countries in the ban represent only a small fraction of the world's 50 Muslim-majority nations and because it also bans non-Muslims.

Judge Watson says the "illogic of the Government's contentions is palpable. The notion that one can demonstrate animus toward any group of people only by targeting all of them at once is fundamentally flawed."

During his rally, President Trump stated he would fight the ruling all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary, calling it a "judicial overreach." President Trump said by criticizing the courts, the media, "among the most dishonest people in the world," criticize him for his criticism of the courts.

President Trump called the ruling "flawed," given the newest order was "watered down," adding, "I think we should go back to the first one."
