President Trump: “Chief Justice Roberts Can Say What He Wants, But…”

President Donald Trump responded to Chief Justice John Roberts, who released a rare statement defending the most overturned court in the land. The Ninth Circuit, the most liberal court in the nation overturned more than 80% of the time, blocked the administration from cracking down on phony asylum claims.

The White House issued a directive disallowing migrants who refuse to use a prot of entry the ability to file an asylum claim. Chief Justice Roberts praised independent judges, though his court overturns the lower liberal court more often than any other court in the land.

“Justice Roberts can say what he wants, but the 9th Circuit is a complete & total disaster,” President Trump tweeted. “It is out of control, has a horrible reputation, is overturned more than any Circuit in the Country, 79%, & is used to get an almost guaranteed result. Judges must not Legislate Security…”

“…and Safety at the Border, or anywhere else. They know nothing about it and are making our Country unsafe,” the president tweeted in a follow up. “Our great Law Enforcement professionals MUST BE ALLOWED TO DO THEIR JOB! If not there will be only bedlam, chaos, injury and death. We want the Constitution as written!”

Democrats have frequently “judge-shopped” the Ninth Circuit to block the president’s popularly supported agenda on immigration. The court has appeared happy to oblige, including for the president’s travel order, which the Supreme Court ruled was “squarely within the scope of Presidential authority.”
