Pence Says Judge Has the Right to Stop Trump’s Travel Ban – Say What?
Trumplitico News – Pence says judge ‘certainly’ has the right to stop Trump’s travel ban
Vice President Mike Pence is taking a different approach from President Donald Trump to a Washington state judge’s nationwide restraining order on the White House’s temporary travel freeze.
Pence, in a pre-taped interview on ABC’s “This Week” that aired Sunday, told host George Stephanopoulos that Judge James Robart “certainly” has the right to halt Trump’s executive order. “That’s why the administration is complying with that order as we speak,” the vice president said.
Trump, however, took a less diplomatic route. In one of the president’s signature tweet storms over the weekend, Trump called Robart’s move a “terrible decision,” claiming that many “very bad and dangerous people may be pouring into our country” as a result.
