Trump Rips ‘So-Called Judge’ James Robart on Ban

President Trump on Saturday tweeted an attempted takedown of the judge who granted a nationwide temporary restraining order on Friday to block the executive order banning those from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States. He wrote, "The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!" Federal Judge James Robart was appointed by George W. Bush. The Washington-state based judge ruled in favor of a legal challenge to Trump's order, which was brought by the state of Washington and later by the state of Minnesota. Robart ruled that states have legal standing to sue the administration—this could open the door for more litigation against the newly-minted president.
