President Donald Trump spent his first day on holiday at Mar-a-Lago tweeting up a storm. On Wednesday afternoon he picked a fight with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, who'd rebuked the president's attack on "Obama judges" the previous day.


According to Roberts, the U.S. does not have “Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges.”

"Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have “Obama judges,” and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country," Trump tweeted. "It would be great if the 9th Circuit was indeed an “independent judiciary,” but if it is why are so many opposing view (on Border and Safety) cases filed there, and why are a vast number of those cases overturned. Please study the numbers, they are shocking. We need protection and security - these rulings are making our country unsafe! Very dangerous and unwise!"

The fight began when the president lashed out at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which ruled that the president's ban on migrants seeking asylum was unconstitutional.
