Trump says 'so-called judge' whose ruling blocked Muslim ban 'will be overturned'
After a federal judge places a temporary stop on US President Trump's executive order aiming to block citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US, Trump takes to Twitter, vowing the overturn the decision.
Newly elected US President Donald Trump responded Saturday evening to a Federal Judge John Robarts from Seattle, who on Friday issued a temporary halt to Trump's so-called "Muslim ban." The ban seeks to prohibit citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries—namely Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen—from entering the US.



When the Muslim ban was first announced, Israelis with additional citizenship from these countries were concerned they would not be allowed into the US, before the US administration clarified that those without a valid passport to the newly banned countries would not be blocked from entering.

"The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!" wrote Trump on his Twitter account. He continued by saying, "Interesting that certain Middle-Eastern countries agree with the ban. They know if certain people are allowed in it's death & destruction!"


"When a country is no longer able to say who can, and who cannot, come in & out, especially for reasons of safety &.security - big trouble!" continued Trump.


The Seattle judge's order essentially puts a nationwide block on Trump's recent executive order.
