Trump Freaks Out During Major Saturday Afternoon Meltdown, Enemy Announced


Poor old Trumpy isn’t happy. Somebody hurt his feelings.

Seriously though, President Trump just freaked out on Twitter yet again over the late Friday ruling of a Washington based federal judge that temporarily shut down his Muslim ban.

He wrote:

‘What is our country coming to when a judge can halt a Homeland Security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions, can come into U.S.? Because the ban was lifted by a judge, many very bad and dangerous people may be pouring into our country. A terrible decision.’

U.S. District Judge James Robart of Seattle ruled against Trump after the state of Washington brought a lawsuit against the Trump administration over his ban. Trump’s ban put a temporary and unilateral halt to immigration to the U.S. from seven Muslim majority countries across the Middle East and North Africa. The Trump administration claimed that the ban did not target Muslims, but, frankly, that’s not true.

Adding to the heaping piles of untruths that the Trump administration has produced is something out of these latest tweets from the president. He claimed that now, because Judge Robart put a stay on the ban, that “anyone, even with bad intentions, can come to into [the] U.S.”

That’s not true. The Trump administration has continuously claimed that national security concerns warrant the implementation of the ban. However, there is no evidence to back that up. There have been no terror incidents carried out in the United States at any point in the last several decades by persons from the nations that Trump has targeted. The United States already has a rigorous immigrant vetting system, apart from any ban.

These tweets from Trump are the second time today that he has attacked Robart on Twitter. Early Saturday morning, he called him a “so-called judge” and claimed that his ruling against Trump’s ban “takes away security from our country.”

That claim is also a lie. There remains absolutely no evidence that the ban that Trump put in place does anything for national security. Thus, putting an end to it does not “take away security from our country.”

Trump has pledged to have Robart’s ruling overturned. The judge defended it by stating that the states of Washington and Minnesota presented to him evidence of “immediate and irreparable injury” on their parts because of the ban. (Minnesota joined Washington’s lawsuit shortly after it was filed.)
