ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: President Donald Trump was seen golfing in Palm Beach, Florida, on Sunday (February 5). The president was spending the weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort, while Vice President Mike Pence was set to be among the estimated 73,000 fans packing NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, for the Super Bowl. Trump on Sunday ramped up his criticism of a federal judge who blocked a travel ban on seven mainly Muslim nations and said courts were making U.S. border security harder, intensifying the first major legal battle of his presidency. In a series of tweets that broadened his attack on the country's judiciary, Trump said Americans should blame U.S. District Judge James Robart and the court system if anything happened. Trump did not elaborate on what threats the country potentially faced. He added that he had told the Department of Homeland Security to "check people coming into our country VERY CAREFULLY. The courts are making the job very difficult!" The Republican president labeled Robart a "so-called judge" on Saturday, a day after the Seattle jurist issued a temporary restraining order that prevented enforcement of a 90-day ban on citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen and a 120-day bar on all refugees. A U.S. appeals court later on Saturday denied the government's request for an immediate stay of the ruling.
