On Saturday afternoon, President Trump responded to a federal judge that temporarily blocked his administration from moving $1 billion approved by the Pentagon to pay for a border wall.
Trump tweeted the following, “Another activist Obama appointed judge has just ruled against us on a section of the Southern Wall that is already under construction. This is a ruling against Border Security and in favor of crime, drugs and human trafficking. We are asking for an expedited appeal!”

According to ABC News, The California judge did not rule on the legality of the administration’s diversion of another $3.6 billion from military construction funds.
U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam’s decision claimed that the Trump administration tried to circumvent Congress and that was the reason for his decision to block those funds and for an added touch, he claimed Trump’s past statements helped him come to that conclusion.
So some un-elected Californian judge gets to override the president and dictate policy for the entire nation just because they don’t LIKE that policy? Nationwide injunctions are a complete abomination. There is no basis in our Constitution for the existence of district judges, not alone anything that gives them authority over the powers constitutionally reserved for our actual elected officials (thus circumventing the INTENDED balance of powers) in favor of control by random activists who happen to have a robe.
Anti-American judges are sitting on the Federal Benches at this point in time, ruling against all things that would benefit the nation itself? Maybe we should sue the government for allocating $150 billion annually to an illegal immigrant.
What do you think Trump will do at this point? SHARE your voice below.
