“Do you get the impression that the Supreme Court doesn’t like me?,” the president posted on Twitter shortly after the Supreme Court rejected his bid to end the Obama-era program that shields Dreamers from deportation.
“These horrible & politically charged decisions coming out of the Supreme Court are shotgun blasts into the face of people that are proud to call themselves Republicans or Conservatives. We need more Justices or we will lose our 2nd. Amendment & everything else. Vote Trump 2020!” he continued.
On Monday, the justices ruled that existing federal law protects gay, lesbians and transgender people from discrimination in the workplace.
The 6-3 decision was written by Justice Neil Grosuch — who was appointed by Trump — and joined by Chief Justice John Roberts, who’s considered a conservative mainstay on the court.
Roberts also wrote the 5-4 decision in Thursday’s ruling on the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals.
