Donald Trump Blasts Federal Judge Who Suspended Immigration Ban
Feb 07, 2017 12:34 PM EST
After a week of mostly being silent, U.S. President Donald Trump apparently, has had enough. Trump has broken his weeklong silence against his critics with a tweet over the weekend.
Donald Trump said on his Twitter account that the judge who blocked Trump's travel ban has put the United States in peril, according to a report from The Telegraph. Trump also added that the federal judge and the court system should be blamed if ever something bad happens.
"Just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril," Donald Trump tweeted on Sunday. "If something happens blame him and court system. People pouring in. Bad!"
Donald Trump's tweet comes just two days after U.S. District Court Judge James Robart suspended Trump's travel ban on seven predominantly Muslim countries and refugees from entering the United States. Trump's tweet also comes a day after the U.S. Justice Department's appeal to reinstate the ban was denied by a panel of judges.
Just last month, Donald Trump signed an executive order that puts a travel ban on are Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The executive order also puts a restriction on refugees from all nations from entering the U.S.
Judge James Robart suspended the travel ban last Friday. Donald Trump's administration filed an appeal to reinstate the ban but was denied by a federal appeals court, via a report from CNN.
The tweet by Donald Trump was the latest in his on-going attacks against the U.S. courts. Earlier on Sunday, Trump's Vice-President, Mike Pence, defended Trump and his travel ban.
Vie-President Mike Pence said that Donald Trump has every right to criticize the government's other two branches. Pence, however, was also quick to point out that even though he was questioning Robart's decision and the subsequent denial of their appeal, he will not question the legitimacy of the judge.
