Following President Trump's executive order banning entry into the U.S. from seven Muslim-majority nations, Minnesota and Washington filed lawsuits against the President.

They deemed the executive order unlawful, and a U.S. District Judge James Robart put a temporary hold on the travel ban. Trump responded in a tweet by calling Robart a "so-called judge."

Political Junkie Ken Rudin recaps the back and forth between Trump and these two states, and other news surrounding the President's actions. 

California's open resistance to many of Trump's policies has prompted threats from the president regarding defunding the state. Rudin comments on the possibility of that kind of action.

Also up in the air is Trump's nomination of Neil Gorsuch as Supreme Court Justice. Rudin says Democrats might try to resist Gorsuch as Republicans resisted Obama's pick of Merrick Garland.
