Donald Trump Goes On Twitter Rant Over ‘So-Called Judge' Who Halted Travel Ban
Someone hand Donald Trump a tissue because he's crying on Twitter again.
The president seems to be a little upset after his travel ban came to a nationwide halt on Friday night.
The ban — which stopped citizens from seven mostly-Muslim countries from entering the United States — was temporarily halted by Judge James Robart, a Republican federal judge from Washington state, CNN reports.
Upon hearing the news, Trump expressed his concerns through a series of controversial tweets… naturally.
Trump began his Twitter rant early Saturday morning by claiming a country is in “big trouble” if it cannot decide who is allowed in and out of it.
Seconds later, he claimed “certain Middle Eastern countries agree with the ban.”
“If certain people are allowed in it's death and destruction!”
Soon after, he personally criticized Judge James Robart, who was originally appointed by George W. Bush (yes, Robart is a Republican).
Trump began by calling him a “so-called” judge, and said his block on the executive order was “ridiculous.”
That's not where the Twitter rant stopped, though.
Soon after belittling Robart, Trump called the New York Times “fake news” and said the organization apologized for “inaccurately” covering him after winning the election.
Last, but not least, Donald ended this particular Twitter rant with his infamous slogan.
“MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
Yup. All of these defensive tweets came the morning after Robart put a temporary halt to the 90-day travel ban that went into effect last week after Donald Trump signed an executive order.
Since the executive order was signed, as many as 100,000 visas may have been temporarily revoked, Washington Post reports.
However, after the nationwide ban was stopped on Friday night, US Customs and Border Protection reportedly already began contacting airlines about the halt.
It's been reported airlines have already begun letting refugees of the previously banned countries back onto planes.
Sean Spicer, White House press secretary, responded to the halt in a statement.
At the earliest possible time, the Department of Justice intends to file an emergency stay of this outrageous order and defend the executive order of the president, which we believe is lawful and appropriate.
However, soon after, an updated statement was reportedly released without the word “outrageous.”
Based off Donald Trump's Twitter reaction to the lifted ban, we can all assume this temporary halt won't ensue without a fight from Trump's administration.
