Totally crazy. President Trump slammed a federal judge from Hawaii Wednesday night for blocking what he called his “watered-down” travel ban on people from six predominantly Muslim countries. Trump spoke shortly after US District Judge Derrick Kahala Watson issued a preliminary injunction, saying the ban might violate the Constitution’s establishment clause by singling out people of one religion.
“Let me give you the bad news, the sad news. A judge has blocked our executive order on travel ban … The order he blocked was a watered-down order from the first order,” Trump said during a rally in Nashville, referring to his first ban, which was also blocked. Trump noted that the revised order was made to rectify problems found with the first travel ban. The amended order removed Iraq from the ban and allows in people with visas and green cards from the affected countries.
“This is an unprecedented judicial overreach,” Trump fumed. “You don’t think this was done by a judge for a political reason, no? … This decision makes us look weak. We’re going to fight this terrible decision all the way to the Supreme Court. We’re going to win. We’re going to keep our citizens safe, believe me.”
The Courts are melding with the Executive Branch
of government - very liberal.
