President Donald Trump on Wednesday rebutted the pointed — and rare — criticism of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts that judges don’t carry water for the president who appoints them.

In a tweet that escalated the president’s feud with judges on the liberal-leaning 9th Circuit, Trump said jurists named by President Barack Obama "have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country."

"Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have ‘Obama judges,’ and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country," Trump tweeted.

"It would be great if the 9th Circuit was indeed an ‘independent judiciary,’ but if it is why ... are so many opposing view (on Border and Safety) cases filed there, and why are a vast number of those cases overturned," he added in a second tweet. "Please study the numbers, they are shocking," he told Roberts. "We need protection and security - these rulings are making our country unsafe! Very dangerous and unwise!"

Trump continued:

“Thank you to President Trump on the Border. No American President has ever done this before.” Hector Garza, National Border Patrol Council

There are a lot of CRIMINALS in the Caravan. We will stop them. Catch and Detain! Judicial Activism, by people who know nothing about security and the safety of our citizens, is putting our country in great danger. Not good!

“79% of these decisions have been overturned in the 9th Circuit.” @FoxNews A terrible, costly and dangerous disgrace. It has become a dumping ground for certain lawyers looking for easy wins and delays. Much talk over dividing up the 9th Circuit into 2 or 3 Circuits. Too big!

Earlier Wednesday, the GOP-appointed leader of the federal judiciary scolded Trump for calling a ruling against his amnesty ban one that came from an "Obama judge" on the 9th Circuit.

Trump has bitterly complained that his opponents file their lawsuits in courts that are part of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and on Tuesday railed that "every case that gets filed in the 9th Circuit, we get beaten. And then we end up having to go to the Supreme Court, like the travel ban, and we won."
