This morning the Supreme Court ruled against Donald Trump yet again, this time in a 5-4 vote upholding DACA, a major victory for the rule of law and for immigrants. No one was expecting Trump to be happy about the ruling. But his response was so explicitly violent in nature, it’s raising eyebrows to say the least.
Here’s what Trump tweeted about the ruling:
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!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 18, 2020
It can’t be coincidence that Donald Trump is accusing the Supreme Court of firing “shotgun blasts into the face” of his supporters, while also mentioning the Second Amendment. Trump is encouraging his deranged supporters to carry out violent attacks on Supreme Court Justices. Trump should be impeached, convicted, and removed from office for this tweet alone.
