Cheerleaders, band greet Trump ahead of Super Bowl party

US President Donald Trump enjoyed the sights and sounds of a marching band on Sunday as he got ready along with the rest of the country for a rousing Super Bowl Sunday.

First Lady Melania Trump also joined the president as they headed to an annual Super Bowl viewing party at Trump International Golf Course in West Palm Beach.

The Atlanta Falcons were set to take on the New England Patriots in an NFL title game that will be played with deep political undertones.

The Republican president on Sunday had ramped up his criticism of a federal judge who blocked a travel ban on seven mainly Muslim nations and said courts were making US border security harder, intensifying the first major legal battle of his presidency.

In a series of tweets that broadened his attack on the country's judiciary, Trump said Americans should blame US District Judge James Robart and the court system if anything happened.
