Pence Defends Trump’s Judge Attacks


Vice President Mike Pence today said President Donald Trump has the right to “criticize the other two branches of government,” after the president hurled personal attacks at Judge James Robart—at one point referring to him as a “so-called judge.” Robart issued a ruling on Friday that halted Trump’s executive order that banned foreign nationals traveling from seven Muslim-majority countries.
