Donald Trump Condemns Threats against Conservative Supreme Court Justices

Former President Donald Trump condemned the radical left’s campaign to intimidate the Supreme Court’s six conservative justices, during a rally held in Mendon, Illinois on Saturday.

Trump referred to pro-abortion extremists’ threats against the justices as an “organized and concentrated effort,” and called out Democratic officials’ failure to explicitly denounce the radical intimidation campaign.

“The left-wing campaign of terror directed at the Supreme Court in recent months is unlike anything in the history of our country,” Trump told supporters on Saturday. “The attempted assassination of Justice Kavanaugh, the illegal intimadation of justices’ homes and the radical left violent terrorist attacks on pro life centers were a frontal assault on our republic.”

The Supreme Court’s six conservative justices have been a frequent target of abortion activists since the May 4 leak which indicated that the court was preparing to overturn Roe v. Wade. For over a month, protesters have gathered outside the justices’ private homes, attempting to influence the court’s decision on Roe.

One far-left group, Ruth Sent Us, even suggested their followers target Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s church and her children’s school.

The former president went on to praise the court’s conservative justices, who on Friday officially overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case which had protected abortion as a constitutional right for nearly 50 years.

“And I especially want to commend the justices for standing strong in the face of outrageous threats and even violence,” Trump said. “You’ve been seeing what’s been going on. There’s never been a time like this.”

Trump also called out Democratic leaders for not doing enough to denounce their supporters’ threats against the Supreme Court.

“To this day, the leaders of the Democratic Party have failed to forcefully condemn the violence and threats, and hold the perpetrators accountable,” he said.

Since the court’s ruling on Roe became public Friday, pro-abortion demonstrations have once again ramped up across the country, including at the homes of the court’s justices. The Department of Homeland Security has warned Americans that pro-abortion violence could last “for weeks,” as extremists attempt to influence upcoming state ballot measures on abortion.
