There’s been a lot of commotion recently over some of President Trump’s nominations for positions in the White House and the Supreme Court. It all came to a tipping point when President Trump was given a bit of a surprise after his own Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, spoke out against his actions.
The reason for this is because of President Trump’s tweets about the backlash he’s been receiving from federal court system after a few of his more dubious decisions as our commander in chief.
President Trump felt very strongly about the federal court’s decision and promptly tweeted out on February 8th:
“If the U.S. does not win this case as it so obviously should, we can never have the security and safety to which we are entitled. Politics!”
Later that day President Trump continued to speak out against the federal court system over twitter:
“When a country is no longer able to say who can, and who cannot , come in & out, especially for reasons of safety &.security – big trouble!”
President Trump’s most notorious tweet said this to the federal court’s backlash:
“See you in court, the security of our nation is at stake!”
This tweet caused the rift between the federal court system and President Trump to widen quite a bit as Neil Gorsuch called the tweets demoralizing and disheartening in a conversation with senator Richard Blumenthal.
This statement surprised many people since Neil Gorsuch has stayed relatively quiet about President Trump’s decisions since his nomination as a Supreme Court justice.
Senator Richard Blumenthal had this to say about Gorsuch’s response to Trump:
“I said they were more than disheartening and I said to him that he has an obligation to make his views clear to the American people, so they understand how abhorrent or unacceptable President Trump’s attacks on the judiciary are.”
Even after his own Supreme Court nominee spoke out against his actions, Trump continues to tweet about his dispute with the federal court and it’s ruling.
“72% of refugees admitted into U.S. (2/3 -2/11) during court breakdown are from 7 countries: Syria, Iraq, Somalia, Iran, Sudan, Libya & Yemen.”
With President Trump and the federal court system butting heads over the past few days it looks like there will be rough times ahead with Trump’s future decisions in office and whatever backlash they may garner.
