BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Let the legal process play out. But he's got so much other on his plate. And, keep in mind, this was an operation to pause in those seven terror-laden states, without stable governments, in order to set up a vetting procedure. Set up the vetting procedure.

Whether it was a liberal court or not. It doesn't matter.
