NEW DELHI (Reuters) – President Donald Trump on Tuesday criticised two liberal-leaning justices on the nation’s top court, saying Supreme Court justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg should recuse themselves from any cases involving him.
He cited comments Sotomayor made in a recent dissent that were critical of the Trump administration.
Trump, at a news conference at the end of a two-day visit to India, called Sotomayor’s comments “inappropriate”.
