States are Suing Trump’s Administration at Record Pace

Many presidents face opposition from states during their time in office but the Trump administration is being sued by states at a record pace.

According to The Hill:

State attorneys general have filed an unprecedented number of lawsuits against the Trump administration, as Democratic-led states exercise new levers of power to block some of President Trump’s most controversial initiatives.

States have formed coalitions to file 103 multi-state suits against the administration in its first three years, according to data compiled by Paul Nolette, a political scientist at Marquette University. The vast majority of those suits, 96, have been led by Democratic attorneys general.

By contrast, states filed 78 multi-state suits in the eight years of President Obama’s administration, and 76 multi-state suits during President George W. Bush’s eight years in office. Democratic attorneys general sued Trump 40 times in his first year in office alone, more lawsuits than have ever been filed against an administration in a single year.

“Every time this guy breaks the law, we take him to court,” said Xavier Becerra (D), California’s attorney general who has led 31 suits and been party to 25 others. Joining with other states to file suit “adds strength, it certainly adds value, and it shows unity. It demonstrates that the unlawful action that the Trump administration is looking to take impacts more than just one state.”

The most targeted agency by the attorneys general is the Environmental Protection Agency which has been sued 31 times. The agency’s focus has been to roll back suffocating Obama-era regulations.

These are evil, evil people that want to destroy our nation. Why doesn’t people wake up and get rid of these leaders. Look at what has happened to Virginia. They are going down the tube fast! In another year they will be like CA, NY and IL.

Why Don’t people wake up ? They have. That is why a man like Trump got into office after the American people saw what that phony Muslim tried to do to America. The real Americans are awake and they will prove it on election day. You and I and the rest of the Good people, the “Deplorables” have little to fear.

There must be some way to turn this back on the states, state attorney generals and courts that continue this harassment. Can SCOTUS stop this? What can we do to stop it given half of this country worships the ground obama walks on?!?!

The leftist globalist billionaires who actually run western civilization DESPISE Trump’s America first agenda. Be on alert, the Federal Reserve & these globalists are working hand in glove & the HUGE equities & real estate BUBBLES fueled by ridiculously low interest rates & printed funny money just might get a pinprick ahead of the 2020 election, just as they did when they wanted Obama in the White House in 2008.

HATE: only STUPID people hate. xavier becerra is not a smart person. NONE of the demonrat led states ags are very smart. If they were possessors of any common sense, they would see that their actions only further the fervor with which the people of the USA are loving their ELECT President. The people’s common sense brings them to face the reality: the demonrats have lied to them too many times, never did anything about their promises proffered when running for election, always promoting their friends and their corrupting backers, promising to raise taxes, promising to help the ILLEGALS with the monies marked for Social Security and Medicare, while accusing the President of what they are doing. The people of the US are so much smarter than the demonrats give them credit.

Now it boils down to the the fact that the majority of the population think they were cheted in the 2016 election, look back through history every President who lost the popular vote but put in by the Electoral College has been pushed back against in their time in office. People who feel cheated want to make it difficult for the person who they think cheated them. Every one except Bush who had the Trade Centers disaster , served only one term under difficult circumstances their whole Presidency.
