VP Mike Pence, When asked about the appropriateness of the President calling the federal Judge James Robart of Seattle a “so-called judge” in a Tweet (below), VP Pence said, “President Trump’s made it clear that our administration is going to put the safety and security of the American people first. And the executive order that he put into effect, which suspends immigration from seven countries that have been compromised by terrorism and don’t have the kind of internal systems that we can be certain that people that are applying to come to this country are who they say they are was legal – it was appropriate and our administration is going to be using all legal means at our disposal to challenge the judge’s order.”

Asked about whether calling the judge a “so-called judge” undermines “the separation of powers in the constitution” Pence replied, “I don’t think it does. I think the American people are very accustomed to this president speaking his mind and speaking very straight with them.”

He also spoke about the sanctions the U.S. has imposed on Iran after its missile test, saying, “Iran should be standing up and be essentially working with the world community. But instead, what we see is this kind of belligerent and hostile behavior, defiant behavior to the world community.”

The interview was broadcast originally on Sunday, February 5, 2017.
