On Tuesday night the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco heard oral arguments in a major case against Donald Trump's Muslim ban.
The hearing was held over telephone, and comes just days after a federal judge named James Robart out in Seattle blocked the ban.
On one side of today's oral arguments were the Attorneys General of Minnesota and Washington state.
As the clash between Donald Trump and the courts deepened this weekend - the president took a dangerous new line of argument.
Donald Trump just pulled off the biggest bait-and-switch in American history.
