(Reuters) - A U.S. federal judge in Seattle on Friday granted a nationwide temporary restraining order on President Donald Trump's executive order made last week that temporarily barred entry to the United States to citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries.

The ruling is the broadest to date against Trump's directive.
