BEIJING, Feb 8 (FAM) – A senior judge in China has branded Donald Trump “an enemy of the rule of law” and protested how judicial independence in the US was being trampled on. These were some of the harsh words from Supreme People’s Court judge He Fan to the newly inaugurated US president, and smacked of turning the tables.

In a WeChat post on Sunday, He criticised Trump’s serial Twitter-attacks on Seattle Federal Judge James Robart, who had suspended the president’s controversial executive order, a 90-day entry ban on refugees, visitors and permanent residents from seven majority Muslim countries.
