PALM BEACH — President Donald Trump is spending the weekend at Mar-a-Lago, but he's not taking a holiday from his Twitter account.
Trump and First Lady Melania Trump arrived late Friday afternoon and got a warm welcome at Palm Beach International Airport for Trump's first visit to Palm Beach since becoming president.
Beginning at 7:59 a.m. today, Trump began tweeting his disapproval of a federal judge's order late Friday putting a hold on Trump's executive order banning travelers and immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
"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!" Trump tweeted. "Interesting that certain Middle-Eastern countries agree with the ban. They know if certain people are allowed in it's death & destruction!"
Trump then took a shot at Seattle-based U.S. District Judge James Robart, tweeting: "The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!"
