US President Donald Trump tweeted a lot last night. This time, his messages revolve around the Supreme Court – and competitor Joe Biden.
Amid moderate polls a few days before the US presidential election, incumbent Donald Trump attacked his challenger Joe Biden in a series of late-night tweets. “Biden is going to destroy the United States Supreme Court. Don’t let that happen! ” Trump wrote around 2:30 p.m. (local time) on Friday evening. With Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s appeal earlier this week, the Republican was able to increase the Conservative majority in the Supreme Court to six of the nine seats.
Trump: “New judges will be radical left”
In the event of a victory in Tuesday’s election, Biden will change the influential court, Trump further tweeted. With its rulings on highly contentious issues such as immigration, abortion rights or same-sex marriage, the Supreme Court repeatedly sets the course for American society. Among other things, democrats are currently discussing a possible extension of the court. “The many new judges will be the radical left!” Trump claimed.

In recent weeks, Biden had made evasive comments on a possible court extension, known as “court packing.” At the same time, however, he wants judicial reform in case of victory. A committee of Democrats, Republicans, and constitutional experts should work out recommendations for six months.
In another tweet, Trump wrote that he was “way ahead in Texas.” In the southern state, traditionally considered the Republican stronghold, Trump won by about nine percentage points in 2016. However, in recent studies, he’s neck and neck with Biden. Trump, referring to the traditional color of his party, wrote to his supporters to look at the “Great Red Wave.”
