Trump: ‘Any Negative Polls Are Fake News’

According to President Trump, any negative polls are fake news.

The Hill reports:

A CNN/ORC poll released Sunday found that most Americans oppose an executive order signed by Trump that instated travel restrictions.

CNN’s Brian Stelter pointed out that the news network showed results from the poll around 30 minutes before Trump’s tweets.

Trump signed an executive order in January that imposed a 90-day ban for visitors from seven Muslim-majority countries to the U.S. The order also prohibits refugees from war-torn Syria from entering the U.S. indefinitely and suspends all admissions for 120 days.
A federal judge halted the order late last Friday.

Trump used Twitter over the weekend to slam the judge, who was appointed by former President Bush in 2003 and unanimously approved by the Senate.

Trump told Americans to blame the judge if something “bad” were to happen.

“Just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. If something happens blame him and the court system. People are pouring in. Bad!” Trump tweeted Sunday.

Trump faced bipartisan backlash over the weekend for his attacks on the federal judge.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell advised him that it’s “best to avoid criticizing judges individually.”

Vice President Mike Pence said the judge “certainly” has the authority to impose the halt on the immigration order, despite Trump’s opposition.

Polls conducted throughout the 2016 election found Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton in the lead.
