President Donald Trump launched a new attack on the judicial system on Monday, targeting the nation’s high court by demanding that two liberal Supreme Court justices recuse themselves from any case involving him or his administration.
Trump claimed associate justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg couldn’t be fair to him:
“Sotomayor accuses GOP appointed Justices of being biased in favor of Trump.” @IngrahamAngle @FoxNews This is a terrible thing to say. Trying to “shame” some into voting her way? She never criticized Justice Ginsberg when she called me a “faker”. Both should recuse themselves..
....on all Trump, or Trump related, matters! While “elections have consequences”, I only ask for fairness, especially when it comes to decisions made by the United States Supreme Court!
Trump has a history of attacking prosecutors and judges. Earlier this month, he slammed U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who presided over the case against longtime Trump ally Roger Stone. Jackson also handled a case that concluded last year against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

If any justices need to recuse, it’s Trump’s own appointees, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, especially after Kavanaugh warned of retribution to Democrats. https://t.co/VMqQyKZhe5— Tea Pain (@TeaPainUSA) February 25, 2020
Clarence Thomas needs to recuse himself from any case involving Donald Trump. If he doesn't, he needs to be removed from the Supreme Court.— Rep. Richard Dangler (@RDangler) February 25, 2020
His wife's political hackery in service to Trump can't be separated from his job as a justice.
The president is now going after a Supreme Court justice on Twitter because he didn't like her dissenting opinion in a case.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) February 25, 2020
So Justice Sonia Sotomayor complains about all these GOP appointed Justices being biased in favor of Trump, and Trump’s response is to demand that both Sotomayor and Ginsburg recuse themselves, which would leave Elena Kagan as the only female Justice left on the Supreme Court.— Eugene Gu, MD (@eugenegu) February 25, 2020
Actually the justice who most needs to recuse from cases involving Trump is Clarence Thomas, whose wife is a paid MAGA mercenary.https://t.co/QtvdQd3Gex— Brian Fallon (@brianefallon) February 25, 2020
So here we go. Trump demands the two liberal female judges on the Supreme Court (Sotomayor and Ginsburg) recuse themselves on any Trump-related Supreme Court hearings. This is what happens when you appoint 'left-wing' and 'right-wing' judges. An affront to democracy. And scary. https://t.co/IF5vBstGwD— Daphne Romney QC (@DaphneRomneyQC) February 25, 2020
Clarence Thomas's wife is currently purging anyone in government who doesn't kiss your ass. Odd that you don't ask Thomas to recuse. https://t.co/kxUzzGsybR— The Rude Pundit (@rudepundit) February 25, 2020
Donald Trump demanding that a justice recuse herself for pointing out the partisan bias of other justices is peak GOP.— Alexandra Erin (@AlexandraErin) February 25, 2020
