Trump is not the first President to look down on a court ruling

Red States:
Trump Tweets ‘So-Called’ Judge; Partisans On Both Sides Light Their Hair On Fire

Some have compared Trump to Andrew Jackson.  In his disdain for certain court rulings, they do have something in common.
...
In a popular quotation that is believed to be apocryphal, President Andrew Jackson reportedly responded: "John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it!" This derives from Jackson's comments on the case in a letter to John Coffee, "...the decision of the Supreme Court has fell still born, and they find that they cannot coerce Georgia to yield to its mandate".[2]
...
It should be noted that this is not the first controversial ruling by this judge.
...
... last August, the Seattle Times reported that Judge Robart had favorably cited the “black lives matter” movement in a ruling on a civil dispute....
...
He does appear to be a judge who goes off the judicial reservation on occasion.
