FEATURING BAHER AZMY – Two judges have now struck down Donald Trump’s second attempt at banning Muslims from a handful of countries to enter the United States. A federal judge in Hawaii issued a temporary restraining order against the ban, which would have gone into effect on Thursday. The ruling, by judge Derrick Watson was made on a case brought by the state of Hawaii against the federal government.
A second judge in Maryland then blocked the core part of the ban from going into effect as well.
Speaking to a crowd of supporters on Wednesday night in Nashville, Tennessee, Trump lambasted the rulings saying they “make us look weak.”
