President Donald Trump launched a personal attack on Twitter against James Robart, the federal judge who has temporarily blocked his ban on letting in refugees and travellers with visas from seven nations with mostly Muslim populations, and the Democrats are furious.

Democrats speak out against the President

The Democrats have had an angry response to Trump’s attack on Robart. Head Democrat of the House, Nancy Pelosi, has said that “no matter how many times the President attacks this judge,” it can’t change what this ban is, which she describes as “unconstitutional, immoral and dangerous.”

Senator Patrick Leahy, a Democrat from Vermont, released a statement referring to President Trump’s “hostility” towards the law as “not just embarrassing,” but in fact “dangerous.” He believes that Trump is “intent on precipitating a constitutional crisis.”

Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University, said that Trump will struggle “to demand that courts respect his inherent authority” because he himself is “disrespecting the inherent authority of the judiciary,” which is creating a kind of paradox.
