White House chief of staff Reince Priebus said a federal district court in California went "bananas" in blocking President Donald Trump's order blocking funding to sanctuary cities Tuesday.

"It's the Ninth Circuit going bananas," Priebus told reporters in his office in the West Wing of the White House late Tuesday, The Hill reported. "It's clear forum-shopping that's going on in this country."

U.S. District Judge William Orrick in San Francisco issued the temporary ruling in a lawsuit challenging Trump's order. His court falls under the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which in February ruled against the president's first travel ban.

Orrick, 63, was named to the bench in 2013 by President Barack Obama.

Priebus said he believed Orrick's decision was "something that will be overturned eventually – and we will win at the Supreme Court level at some point."

"We're taking action to appeal this," he added. "You'll find out soon enough."
