A US appeals court has rejected the Trump administration's request to immediately reinstate its travel ban barring citizens from seven mainly Muslim countries and temporarily banning refugees.

A federal judge temporarily invalidated the ban on Friday night (local time), and the US Justice Department today filed a formal appeal against the ruling.

"We'll win. For the safety of our country, we'll win," Mr Trump told reporters at his private Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

But on Sunday evening, the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit denied the request.

Key points:

  • The US Justice Department today filed a formal appeal
  • The White House has until Monday to present a reply
  • Who is the judge who blocked the ruling?
