Trump took to social media hours after Vice President Pence defended the president's attack on Robart. Pence also predicted that a higher court would eventually uphold the measure in the name of national security.
"We are going to win the arguments because we’re going to take the steps necessary to protect the country, which the president of the United States has the authority to do," Pence said on Fox News Sunday, one in a series of news show interviews.
Pence told ABC's This Week that Trump was "speaking his mind" when he denounced a "so-called" judge — Robart, who is based in Seattle — for ruling against the travel ban.
