Pence: Trump administration 'watching' Russian Federation

Trump turned to Twitter on Saturday to mock U.S. District Judge James Robart as a "so-called judge" and dismiss his ruling as "ridiculous" and one that could allow "many very bad and unsafe people" into the U.S.

When asked if Trump's remarks were "constructive", Pence argued that it people find it "very refreshing" to know how the president feels, and that Robart's order was "frustrating" for blocking the order nationwide.

"The administration is complying with that order as we speak, and we'll go through the process in court", the vice president said on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos".

Pence said from the very outset of his campaign for the president and the outset of this administration, President Donald Trump has made it clear that he is going to put the safety and security of the American people first.

Pence spoke hours after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco denied the Justice Department's request for an immediate reinstatement of Trump's travel ban, which had affected some visa holders and all refugees planning to settle in the U.S. Some 60,000 valid visas were canceled as a result of the president's January 27 directive, the State Department said.

Trump fumed and lashed out this weekend after a federal judge in Seattle late Friday ordered a nationwide halt to enforcement of Trump's week-old order temporarily barring citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries - including Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen - pending an extensive review of US immigration policies.

The vice president argued that President Trump's executive order restricting immigration is constitutional during an interview with Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press" Sunday.

"Is it right for the President to say "so-called judge"?"

Democrats have expressed dismay over Trump's Twitter comments, saying they suggested the president did not respect the independence of the judiciary.

"This seat does not belong to any party or ideology", he said, adding that "the Supreme Court belongs to the American people, and the American people deserve a vote on the floor of the United States Senate".

Beached whale had 30 plastic bags in its stomach
Throughout the week the 20-foot-long adult male repeatedly swam into the shallow waters off the island of Sotra west of Bergen. Vets from the University of Bergen said the bags would have blocked its digestive system, causing the animal considerable pain.

On Saturday night, a federal appeals court denied a Trump administration request to lift the restraining order and allow the immigration ban to continue. "He is the chief executive of our country".

"And we're going to challenge the judge's order on that basis, because the reality is, we face a risky enemy and the president is determined to use the authority that he has under "The Constitution" and under the law", Pence said.

"I think it's best to avoid criticizing judges individually", McConnell said on CNN's "State of the Union". "The states can take a look at this issue". "But what you're hearing there is a determination by the president of the United States to not let semantics or the arguments of the past get in the way of exploring the ability to work together with Russian Federation and with President Putin in the days ahead", Pence said.

"Look, Bill, we can be babies, but you take a look at the registration, you have illegals, you have dead people you have this, it's really a bad situation, it's really bad", he said.
