Trump suffers second defeat as revised travel ban put on hold


For the second time in as many months, a federal court has blocked U-S President Donald Trump's travel ban.
    
This time, the ruling came yesterday from a judge in Hawaii, who rejected the government's claims that the revised ban is about national security -- not discrimination.

U-S District Judge Derrick Watson also said Hawaii would suffer financially if the executive order constricted the flow of students and tourists to the state.

The original ban was struck down by a judge in Washington state in early February.
