President Donald Trump had an emphatic response Thursday night to a federal appeals court’s refusal to reinstate his executive order temporarily barring visitors from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States.

“SEE YOU IN COURT,” the President tweeted in all-caps.

Trump told reporters at the White House that he believed the decision was a political one, per reports from CNN and Fox News.

A panel of three judges from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals declined on Thursday to block a lower-court ruling suspending the ban.

An appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court is possible.
