Trump calls court decision blocking revised travel ban 'judicial overreach'

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said a decision by a U.S. federal judge in Hawaii to issue an emergency halt on Wednesday to his revised travel ban was an example of “unprecedented judicial overreach.”
