President Donald Trump "lost" the appeal to reinstate his travel ban executive order Thursday — and his best option now is to "start from scratch" and "write a new order," famed civil-rights attorney Alan Dershowitz said.

"There's a way around this that's a win-win for everybody," Dershowitz told Erin Burnett on CNN. "The president has lost, so he is now in a state of limbo.

"He claims it's a threat to the national security of the United States.

"If he's right, he has one option: rescind the order, start from scratch, write a new order with his new attorney general, with the cooperation perhaps of members of Congress that will both protect the security of the United States and avoid constitutional challenge.

"That's his best option right now," Dershowitz said. "But it would require him to admit he was wrong.

"So, now there's a clash between the ego of the president, and the national security of the United States."
