#Trump says judge striking down Pennsylvania’s pandemic restrictions is ‘good news’

President Trump on Monday celebrated a federal judgement striking down pandemic restrictions in the battleground state of Pennsylvania as an unconstitutional overreach — and said he wanted it to happen in more states.

Aboard Air Force One as he traveled from California to Arizona after being briefed on wildfire damage, the president shared dozens of tweets announcing a federal judge had sided against Gov. Tom Wolf’s sweeping restrictions.

“Congratulations Pennsylvania. Now we await the decision on the Rigged Ballot Scam, which is so bad for our Country!” Trump tweeted to his 85 million followers, referring to mail-in ballots which he has tried to discredit before the election.

Sharing another tweet from an Illinois woman who wrote, “It’s time, Illinois,” Trump responded: “And Michigan, and North Carolina. Next up, phony Ballot voting Hoax!”

US District Judge William Stickman IV on Monday sided with plaintiffs that included hair salons, drive-in movie theaters, a farmer’s market vendor, a horse trainer and several Republican officeholders who sued as individuals.

In his ruling, Stickman said that the Wolf administration’s policies have been overreaching, arbitrary and violated citizens’ constitutional rights.

The governor’s efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus “were undertaken with the good intention of addressing a public health emergency,” Stickman wrote. “But even in an emergency, the authority of government is not unfettered.”

Wolf has lifted some restrictions since his administration was sued in May, allowing businesses to reopen and ending stay-at-home orders. However, limits on gatherings of more than people indoors remained in place.

A spokesperson for Wolf said the administration was reviewing the decision.
