Trump said during a surprise visit with reporters aboard Air Force One en route to Florida from Washington that he was considering "a brand new order" that could be issued as soon as Monday or Tuesday if the administration decides to move in that direction. The White House official separately said: “We are actively considering changes or other executive orders that will keep our country safe from terrorism.”

The official said: “The temporary restraining order, we would not take to the Supreme Court, but we are reviewing all options in the court system.”
