As the impact of the ruling took hold, President Donald Trump lashed out on Twitter early Saturday morning, referring to U.S. District Judge James Robart as "this so-called judge" and calling his decree "ridiculous."
But isn't this the ideal outcome, from Trump's perspective?
He can claim he kept his promise, but that the liberal elite screwed him over. This allows him to pander to his base without actually having to enforce the ridiculous travel ban.
Dunno about that... it could be viewed by his base as an example of failing miserably to drain the swamp...
Depends what he wants really... if he goes down the route of blaming everyone and everything for failing to comply with his every whim and his base lap it up he could bring America to a very ugly place...
I'm sure much of what he wants to do could be done in ways... but he needs to work within structures that are rightly in place to stop and check the whims of anyone who is POTUS.
He seems to be chancing his arm a lot... and is rightly being stopped where he's crossing lines.
