Coincidence? I think not. Donald Trump created a second travel ban and now it is being blocked by some tiny, a no-name judge in Hawaii. Really? Here’s where it gets good though….Obama made a surprise visit to Hawaii just 48 hours before the judge suddenly blocked the order. Sounds pretty fishy to me.
Hours before Trump’s travel ban on individuals from six Muslim countries was set to go into effect yesterday, US District Court Judge Derrick Watson, who presides in Honolulu, slapped down the policy, citing Trump’s comments on Muslims during the presidential campaign as part of his reason for blocking the ban.
Watson was nominated by Obama to the position in November 2012, having graduated from Harvard law school in the same year as Obama.
As the Honolulu Star reported, Obama “made an unannounced return to Hawaii Monday,” just three months after his last official holiday visit as president, arriving with a small entourage that included a Secret Service detail.
