Trump Has a Judge Problem: Court to Hear ‘Ban’ Case Tuesday
At The Resurgent by Steve Berman --
President Trump has problems with judges. This is not news.
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments Tuesday at 6 p.m. ET after receiving a brief from the U.S. Department of Justice seeking to remove the injunction granted by a Washington State federal judge.
It’s a good thing that Trump never went to law school and joined the bar. That tweet would be a hell of an argument. “Bad!”
But in fact, Trump’s problems with judges aren’t invented. Well, sometimes they are, like with Judge Gonzalo Curiel. But this time, at least, the problem isn’t Trump’s fault. His “refugee ban” executive order is legal and in fact above board and using the same standards and laws President Obama used in 2011.
