Former presidential candidate and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders slammed the Trump administration after appearing back to back on "Meet the Press" Sunday with White House official Stephen Miller.
"There's no such thing as judicial supremacy," Miller told NBC's Chuck Todd, criticizing the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling blocking Trump's executive order on immigration and refugees. "What the judges did both at the 9th and at the district level was to take power for themselves to belong squarely in the hands of the president of the United States," said Miller.

"Right now we are in a pivotal moment in American history. We have a president who is delusional in many respects, a pathological liar," Sanders said, "What you just heard Mr. Miller say is a shell game."
"While there is a whole lot of discussion about the racist, in my view, immigration policies of the Trump administration which are based on anti-Muslim ideology, which are doing us enormous harm all over the world, something else is going on at the exact same moment. President Trump is backtracking on every economic promise that he made to the Americann people when he told workers and senior citizens he was not going to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid."
