The president isn't taking no from a Seattle judge who put a halt on his temporary refugee ban. In a series of tweets on Saturday morning, he questioned the legitimacy of the judge's "ridiculous" order and promised it would be overturned:

  1. "When a country is no longer able to say who can, and who cannot , come in & out, especially for reasons of safety &.security - big trouble!"
  2. "Interesting that certain Middle-Eastern countries agree with the ban. They know if certain people are allowed in it's death & destruction!"
  3. "The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!"
