Once again, Trump's inability to shut up cost him:

Significantly, the last time the 4th circuit shot it down, it was because of constitutionality, whereas this time it was because of statutory reasons (from the CNN link):

"Unlike the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, which shot down the President's revised travel ban on constitutional grounds last month, the Ninth Circuit was persuaded by statutory claims under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act.
"In conclusion, the Order does not offer a sufficient justification to suspend the entry of more than 180 million people on the basis of nationality," wrote the panel.
The court went on to explain that the federal immigration law "requires that the President exercise his authority only after meeting the precondition of finding that entry of an alien or class of aliens would be detrimental to the interests of the United States. Here, the President has not done so."

That is eminently fixable.

That is eminently fixable. Not to mention, obvious.
