The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday unanimously upheld a temporary suspension of President Donald Trump's executive order restricting travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations.

On "The First 100 Days" tonight, Chris Wallace said the court's ruling was a "slap in the face" to the Trump administration.

Wallace explained that the court basically ruled that the administration did not make a persuasive case that the travel ban was necessary to protect national security.

"So the court is saying that they side with a judge and with the attorneys general of Minnesota and [Washington] against the president of the United States on the issue of protecting the country," Wallace said. "That's a real slap in the face."

He added that this legal battle takes the focus away from other parts of Trump's agenda, such as protecting jobs, tax reform, ObamaCare and trade.

"All of the oxygen about them is being eaten up in this long, difficult and ultimately unsuccessful fight over the travel ban."
