Donald Trump has some issues with "oranges."

Trump has had many an issue during his presidency with the activist 9th Circuit Court of Appeals – where liberals love to go to try and stifle the his agenda.

But now, over two years into Trump’s presidency, the court finally a significant makeover:
FOX NEWS – For the first time in more than three decades, Republican-appointed judges will soon occupy nearly half the seats on the left-leaning 9th Circuit Court of Appeals — dealing a setback to progressive legal advocates who have long seen the court as a safe bet for favorable rulings.
The radical transformation of the San Francisco-based court is largely the result of President Trump’s aggressive push to nominate conservative judges and bypass traditional consultations with Senate Democrats — a practice that has led to repeated howls of protest from California’s two Democratic senators, Kamala Harris and Judiciary Committee ranking member Dianne Feinstein. The 9th Circuit has a sprawling purview over cases arising in nine western states, including California, Hawaii, and Oregon.
Once Trump’s latest picks to the 9th Circuit, including Ken Lee and Dan Collins, are confirmed as expected and remaining vacancies are filled, 13 of the 29 active seats on the key appellate court will be filled with judges picked by Republican presidents. At this time last year, 16 judges on the 9th Circuit were appointed by Democrats, with only six chosen by Republicans.
Republicans have long been discussing how to deal with the issue of the 9th circuit and others being so activist. And Trump has certainly been unabashed in his criticism as well.

So it seems quite fitting that almost half of the court will now be filled with judges who understand that the Constitution is the highest law of the land and not liberal ideals.

In related news, there’s a report out there that suggests Trump is planning on nominating Amy Coney Barrett if Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat ever comes open.
