The US Justice Department has appealed a temporary block of President Donald Trump’s immigration ban on citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries, as the US president unleashed fiery statements towards the judge who stopped implementation of the order.

The appeal will now go to a three-judge panel which can immediately decide to uphold the ruling in question or suspend it pending a full appeal.

Trump has stated that he was sure that the department would win the appeal filed against US District Judge James Robart’s order in Seattle late on Saturday.

“We’ll win. For the safety of the country, we’ll win,” he told reporters at his private Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.

Friday’s ruling by Seattle US District Judge James Robart place a temporary stop nationwide on the enforcement of Trump’s executive order barring nationals from seven Muslim-majority nations from entering the United States for three months, and indefinitely banning all Syrian refugees.

Trump’s personal attack on Robart was harsh, as the president took to Twitter, accusing him of making a decision that “takes law-enforcement away” from the US and of opening up “the country to potential terrorists”.

Robart said, while issuing his order, that the president was undermining an institution designed to check the power of the White House and Congress.
