President Trump started off his Saturday by calling US District Judge James Robart a "so-called judge" in a tweet, and Trump is closing out the weekend with more tweeted slams against the Seattle judge who has, for now, blocked the president's travel ban on people from seven countries. "Just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. If something happens blame him and court system. People pouring in. Bad!" he tweeted Sunday afternoon.

That was followed with this: "I have instructed Homeland Security to check people coming into our country VERY CAREFULLY. The courts are making the job very difficult!" Trump then tweeted a plug for his pre-Super Bowl interview. As for the big game, the AP reports Trump predicts the New England Patriots will win by 8. For more on Robart, who is a "mainstream" Republican, read this. (More President Trump stories.)
