President Donald Trump hammered two leftist Supreme Court Justices late on Monday night over political remarks that they have made, stating that they should both have to recuse themselves in cases that involve him.
....on all Trump, or Trump related, matters! While “elections have consequences”, I only ask for fairness, especially when it comes to decisions made by the United States Supreme Court!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 25, 2020
Attorney General Barr and Justice Gorsuch have taken aim at what they think is the real problem, the activist judges on the lower courts in the federal system.
As The New York Times reported, Trump’s tweets were in reference to “a recent dissent by Justice Sotomayor against an order by the court to allow the Trump administration to proceed with a plan to deny green cards to immigrants who are deemed likely to become ‘public charges’ reliant on government aid programs.”
Justice Sotomayor, who was appointed by former President Barack Obama, complained that the other judges on the court ruled in a manner that was favorable to the Trump administration.
“Today’s decision follows a now-familiar pattern,” Sotomayor began. “The Government seeks emergency relief from this Court, asking it to grant a stay where two lower courts have not. The Government insists — even though review in a court of appeals is imminent — that it will suffer irreparable harm if this Court does not grant a stay. And the Court yields.”
