Trump said to blame the judge who blocked his immigration order 'if something happens'


President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday, suggesting Americans should blame the federal judge who blocked his immigration order "if something happens." 

The tweet was aimed at U.S. District Judge James Robart, who Trump suggested would be to blame should terrorists attack the United States. Last week Robart put a hold on Trump's executive order to temporarily bar immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries. 

Sunday's tweets come just one day after Trump called Robart a "so-called judge." 

Vice President Mike Pence defended Trump's attack on Robart Sunday morning on ABC's "This Week." Pence said the president was just "speaking his mind." 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told CNN it's not wise to attack judges. 

"I think it's best not to single out judges for criticism. We all get disappointed from time to time," McConnell said. 

Trump also sat down for an interview with Fox News host Bill O'Reilly before the Super Bowl Sunday night. 

During that interview, Trump announced that Pence will lead a commission aimed at investigating voter fraud. The president has claimed multiple times that nearly 3 million people voted illegally during the presidential election but has yet to provide any evidence to back those claims.
