Trump-appointed judges stop Biden’s agenda and things only get worse for Joe

Trump fires back at Biden after Jan. 6 speech

Judges appointed by former President Donald Trump are creating trouble for President Joe Biden’s policies in the early months of the new administration.

Trump-appointed judges have ruled against the current president on policies related to immigration, COVID-19 relief and the environment, among others, Fox News reported.

Many of the court cases against Biden’s policies have yet to be decided and decisions against Biden could be overturned by higher courts.

“What you’re seeing is that ‘pen and phone’ initiatives are running into legal trouble right off the bat,” Ilya Shapiro, the vice president and director of the libertarian Cato Institute’s Robert A. Levy Center for Constitutional Studies, told Fox News.

“Trump appointed a lot of judges — more than anyone in one term than Jimmy Carter, for whom Congress created 152 new judgeships to fill — and these folks aren’t as deferential to executive power as past Republican-appointed judges might have been.”

Trump appointed 226 judges to the federal bench in one term, according to Pew Research Center. This number includes 54 federal appeals court judges.
