President Trump said Tuesday that his Democratic opponent Joey Biden’s allies want to “expand” the Supreme Court, while condemning the former vice president for not releasing a list of possible judicial nominees and warning that he Must have a list of ” Radical Left Judge.
The president tweeted on Tuesday, “Biden Handler wants to expand the court. “It will be very bad for America.”

“On top of that, they don’t want to provide a list of who will be elected to court,” Trump added. “There should be a list of these radical left judges.”
The president’s tweet came hours after Supreme Court Judge Amy Connie voted to endorse Barrett, who was sworn in by Justice Clarence Thomas on Monday night.
Trump nominated Barrett as his third nominee in the High Court in September after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Democrats have denounced the president and Republicans for swearing in Barrett to confirm Barrett before election day, and threatening to sue or add a judge to the Supreme Court.
The idea of ”packing” the court with additional justices – a failed attempt by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1937 to suppress parts of his new deal – ruled unconstitutionally by a high court – Keep pushing the fights.
But court packing, even by its traditional, more lethal definition, is entirely constitutional. The traditional definition of court-packing means expanding the Supreme Court to appoint politically consensual justices, not what Republicans are doing, which is naturally filling vacancies.
Trump and Republicans have warned that Biden will sue, but the former vice president, earlier this month, said he was not a fan of the idea. Biden, however, has not ruled out the idea.

Biden, who opposed court-packing in the primary, declined to answer Thursday’s question, saying, “You will know my position on court-packing the day after the election.”
Biden hinted this week that he would be free to transfer Supreme Court justices to lower courts if elected president, but said he had not yet made a decision on the issue.
“There is some literature among constitutional scholars about the possibility of moving from one court to another, but I have not made that decision,” he said, halting a campaign in Pennsylvania on Monday.
“There is only a group of serious scholars of the constitution, they have a lot of ideas on how we should proceed from this point,” he added.
“That’s what we’re doing. We’re going to give them 180 days, God willing, if I’m elected, since I’ve been sworn in, to be able to make such a recommendation.”
The Biden campaign, meanwhile, has not released a list of possible nominees – a move criticized by Republicans, such as Sen. Chuck Grassley, who has said there is no reason to “hide” Biden’s name.
