In the interview, host Bill O’Reilly asked the president about his plan to withhold federal funding to California if it votes to declare itself a sanctuary state.

“I think it’s ridiculous,” Trump said, reiterating his opposition to so-called sanctuary cities.

Less than two weeks before, Trump had signed an executive order expanding the authority to deport thousands and penalizing cities and states that refuse to work with immigration authorities.

President Trump’s attack on U.S. District Court Judge James Robart entered its second day, as an appeals court denied a request from the Trump administration to immediately reinstate the president’s executive order suspending admissions under the nation's refugee program and barring visa applicants from seven Muslim-majority countries.

Robart two days before had issued a temporary restraining order suspending enforcement of the travel ban in response to a lawsuit filed by the state of Washington and joined by Minnesota. The suit argued that the president’s directive had amounted to religious discrimination against Muslims in violation of the Constitution.

Democrats expressed dismay at Trump’s comments, saying they suggest the president doesn’t respect the independence of the judiciary.

It's not the first time Trump has raised similar claims. But while the New York Times did publish an open letter to subscribers questioning whether the paper and other news outlets had underestimated Trump's support, it did not apologize or label its own coverage bad.

At the meeting, Trump vowed that major reductions in financial regulations were forthcoming — and signaled his intention to rely on Wall Street for advice on the matter.

Trump has suggested slapping new tariffs on Chinese and Mexican goods. He’s also appeared to be considering a proposal by House Republicans for a border adjustment tax, under which exports from the United States would be tax-exempt, but imports would be taxed at the border.

Some economists say that imposing tariffs on imports broadly would raise prices for American consumers and cause significant problems for global production systems, eventually slowing corporate sales, investments and hiring.

President Trump appeared to refer to violent protesters who shut down a speech that Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos was scheduled to give at UC Berkeley two days before.

School officials blamed the violence on “black bloc agitators,” self-described anarchists or antifascists who attach themselves to peaceful protests but are intent on causing damage, though there’s no evidence to suggest they are paid for their time.

Trump’s tweet also came as protests against his travel ban continued throughout the country. Those were largely peaceful and incident-free.

President Trump thanked Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull after Turnbull refuted a Washington Post report describing a phone call between the two leaders as a heated exchange.

In comments to Australian media, Turnbull denied that Trump hung up on him and said that their conversation ended “courteously.”

Turnbull also said that Trump had personally committed to honoring an arrangement for the U.S. to accept some 1,250 refugees from Australia’s offshore detention centers.
