Trump says Senate GOP leader has no power to stop Biden’s court-packing plans

Former President Donald Trump claimed Monday that the Senate GOP is “helpless” against the Biden administration’s plans to pack the court and expand the number of Supreme Court justices.

“With leaders like Mitch McConnell, they are helpless to fight.  He didn’t fight for the Presidency, and he won’t fight for the Court,” Trump said in a statement.

“If and when this happens, I hope the Justices remember the day they didn’t have courage to do what they should have done for America.”

Trump added, “If and when this happens, I hope the Justices remember the day they didn’t have courage to do what they should have done for America.”

The effort to expand the number of justices contrasts the work of the former president. He nominated three conservative justices during his four years in office to give the court a 6 to 3 conservative advantage.

The former president’s comments follow President Joe Biden’s Friday executive order to establish a commission to study whether to add seats to the Supreme Court and potentially add term limits to justices.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) stated on Friday the commission was a “direct assault on our nation’s independent judiciary and yet another sign of the Far Left’s influence over the Biden Administration.”

“President Biden campaigned on a promise of lowering the temperature and uniting a divided nation. If he really meant it, he would stop giving oxygen to a dangerous, antiquated idea and stand up to the partisans hawking it,” McConnell added.

Trump and McConnell agree Biden’s plans to pack the court are wrong. However, the two GOP leaders sparred throughout Trump’s presidency and have continued their attacks long after Biden’s inauguration.
