President TrumpDonald John TrumpCNN's Don Lemon explains handling of segment after Trump criticism NPR reporter after Pompeo clash: Journalists don't interview government officials to score 'political points' Lawyer says Parnas can't attend Senate trial due to ankle bracelet MORE reportedly said on Tuesday that the country’s immigration policy should simply be: “You can’t come in.”

"It’s so simple. It’s called, 'I’m sorry you can’t come in,’ ” a Bloomberg News reporter quoted the president saying to congressional members on Tuesday.


The reporter also said the president told members of Congress that the United States’s current immigration policy is a “hodgepodge of laws." 

Trump's remarks arrive shortly after the Supreme Court's 5-4 ruling to uphold the president’s travel ban, saying Trump has broad discretion to suspend people's entry into the country.  

When asked by reporters if he plans to move forward with the travel ban, the president reportedly said: "Of course." The Supreme Court is the "final word.” 

The Trump administration’s travel ban policy has been met with opposition from both sides of the aisle.
