President Trump didn’t hold back in his latest statement and called out the Supreme Court.
In his most recent statement while talking on the subject of court-packing Trump was quoted saying “our politically correct Supreme Court will get what they deserve—an unconstitutionally elected group of Radical Left Democrats who are destroying our country”.
Trump’s comments come after Biden recently signed an Executive Order that establishes a commission that will look into making possible changes to the Supreme Court.
Remember on the debate stage when Trump called out Biden on court-packing?
It looks like Trump was right all along.

Trump also called out Sen. Mitch McConnell in his statement too and was quoted saying “He didn’t fight for the Presidency, and he won’t fight for the Court”.
The Hill had more details to add to the story:
President Trump said late Monday that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is “helpless” against considerations by Biden to expand the number of Supreme Court justices serving on the bench.
“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 released by the Save America PAC. “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 said it would be “ironic” if Democrats packed the court after the current contingent of justices, led by Republicans 6-3, rejected election challenges by Trump and his allies in a number of states.
Trump nominated, and McConnell helped shepherd to confirmation, three of those justices during Trump’s one term in the White House.
In the statement, Trump warned the court would be “PACKED by the same people, the Radical Left Democrats (who they are so afraid of!), that they so pathetically defended in not hearing the Election Fraud case.”
Trump’s comments come after Biden signed an executive order on Friday establishing a commission to study whether to add seats to the Supreme Court and other reform proposals.

The Washington Times also got the scoop, see what they had to say:
President Donald Trump on Monday said it would be “ironic” if Democrats pack the Supreme Court with new justices, given the current members declined to hear any challenges over the 2020 presidential election.
“Our politically correct Supreme Court will get what they deserve — an unconstitutionally elected group of Radical Left Democrats who are destroying our Country,” Mr. Trump said in a statement.
He said 19 states brought legal challenges before the high court contesting the November election results but the justices refused to hear the cases.
“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,” Mr. Trump said.
Let’s look back at Biden dodging a question about packing the court.
Trump warned us!
