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.
The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 4, 2017
Because the ban was lifted by a judge, many very bad and dangerous people may be pouring into our country. A terrible decision— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 4, 2017
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.
