(Newser) – Despite tweeting "SEE YOU IN COURT" after Thursday's ruling by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, it now appears President Trump won't appeal the hold on his travel ban to the Supreme Court. A source close to the administration tells CNN they have no plans to appeal the ruling, meaning the ban won't be reinstated. The source says the White House is instead considering "possible tweaks" to Trump's executive order. The AP reports the president himself told reporters Friday he's instead thinking about issuing a "brand new order" on immigration and refugees that changes "very little" from his original ban. He also said he still expects to win any legal challenges to the original executive order.
