Trump goes off on angry Twitter rant at 'so-called' federal judge who halted his travel ban order

As is his custom on Saturday mornings, President Donald Trump used Twitter to lash at out at those he perceives to be his enemies. This week he attacked a United States District Court judge who issued a nationwide restraining order Friday evening, allowing travel by citizens from Muslim-majority countries into the U.S.


Federal Judge James Robart, appointed by former President George W. Bush, issued the order immediately forcing U.S. Customs and Immigration officials to halt the ban -- which in turn angered Trump.

Saturday morning Trump tweeted: "The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!"

In previous tweets, Trump defended his actions which civil liberties groups have called unconstitutional.

"When a country is no longer able to say who can, and who cannot , come in & out, especially for reasons of safety &. security - big trouble!" he wrote, adding, "Interesting that certain Middle-Eastern countries agree with the ban. They know if certain people are allowed in it's death & destruction!"

Trump also continued his war on the New York Times, without noting what set him off this time, writing: " After being forced to apologize for its bad and inaccurate coverage of me after winning the election, the FAKE NEWS is still lost!"

The tweeting-president, who is vacationing at his Mar-a-lago Resort in Florida this weekend, punctuated his tweet-storm by with an all-caps: "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"
