White House spokesman Sean Spicer says the administration is confident the revised U.S. travel ban will stand up to legal scrutiny.

The state of Hawaii was the first state to sue after President Donald Trump's revised travel ban was announced Monday. Hawaii says the ban would be harmful to its Muslim community and the island state's tourism economy.

Spicer said during the White House briefing Thursday that administration officials "feel very confident with how that was crafted and the input that was given."

Trump issued the revised executive order after a federal judge in Seattle issued a temporary restraining order halting the initial travel ban order after Washington state and Minnesota sued. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld that decision.

Washington state is asking a judge to extend his order to block the revised ban.
