Trump has done a fantastic job getting judges appointed who put the U.S. Constitution first, but there are still quite a few Obama judges out there.
Unfortunately, these activists judges have no problem trying to obstruct the will of the people.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Federal judge who blocked Trump’s border wall donated $20K to Obama
A federal judge who partially blocked President Trump’s plans to build a border wall along the United States-Mexico border previously donated almost $30,000 to former President Obama, other Democrats, and a political action committee.
U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam, an Obama appointee confirmed in 2014, donated $6,900 to Barack Obama’s debut campaign for president and $14,500 to his reelection campaign, according to federal election records. The same records also indicate he contributed $4,500 to the Democratic National Committee in 2012 and, between 2012 and 2015, sent $3,100 to the Covington Burling LLP PAC, which supports candidates from both parties. His contributions totaled $29,000.
Gilliam made the donations, first reported by the Epoch Times, prior to serving as a U.S. District judge. He had said during his confirmation hearing that he “would base my decisions solely on the facts of each case and the applicable precedent, without regard to any political ideology or motivation,” and that “any personal views would not interfere in any way with my ability to neutrally apply the law.”
Gilliam is one of three federal judges who have donated to Democratic candidates in the past and recently ruled against the Trump administration.
Trump is pushing back, and is right to do so.

Trump, calling for legal appeal, slams ‘activist Obama appointed judge’ over border wall ruling
President Trump on Saturday ripped into what he described as an “activist Obama appointed judge” after a federal judge blocked the administration’s plan to reallocate money to building a wall on the southern border with Mexico.
“Another activist Obama appointed judge has just ruled against us on a section of the Southern Wall that is already under construction,” he said. “This is a ruling against Border Security and in favor of crime, drugs and human trafficking.”
Trump went on to say that the administration is asking for “an expedited appeal.”
Here’s Trump’s tweet:
Another activist Obama appointed judge has just ruled against us on a section of the Southern Wall that is already under construction. This is a ruling against Border Security and in favor of crime, drugs and human trafficking. We are asking for an expedited appeal!

The left has always relied heavily on activist judges.
That’s why we see a complete meltdown every time a Supreme Court justice retires.
