Trump on Travel Ban Court Ruling: "I Have No Doubt We Will Win"


President Trump holds a joint press conference with Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe

QUESTION: I'm curious about yesterday's ruling in the Ninth Circuit Court. Has it caused you to rethink your use of executive power? And how will you respond? And will you sign new executive orders, perhaps a new travel ban?

And Mr. Prime Minister, I'm curious about your reaction to America's withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the TPP. Do you think that's weakened America's position in Asia? And how do you think -- have you envisioned any sort of trade deal with the president working out?

TRUMP: Well, your question was unrelated to what we are here for today, but I will answer it. We are going to keep our country safe. We are going to do whatever is necessary to keep our country safe. We have had decision which we think will be very successful with, it shouldn't have taken this much time because safety is a primary reason.

One of the reasons I am standing here today, the security of our country, the voters felt I would give it the best security. So we'll be doing something very rapidly having to do with the additional security for our country. You'll be seeing that sometime next week.

In addition, we will continue to go through the court process and ultimately, I have no doubt we will win that particular case.
