President Donald Trump said Monday he had no reason to apologize for comments he made about immigration laws during the 2016 presidential campaign.
"There's no reason to apologize – our immigration laws in this country are a total disaster," Trump said during a press conference with Muhammadu Buhari, the president of Nigeria, per The Hill.
"They're laughed at, all over the world, they're laughed at for their stupidity," Trump added.
He said an apology would not make "10 cents worth of difference" to those who opposed the travel ban, which limits travel to the U.S. by people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, and Yemen, The Hill reported.
Trump's previous campaign statements about Muslims, though, were debated during oral arguments at the Supreme Court last Wednesday, with some justices demanding to know why Trump's anti-Muslim remarks should not be considered in their ruling.
The court's conservative majority signaled it was ready to approve a revised version of the plan, The New York Times reported Wednesday.
