Trump’s latest racist remarks, like many of his comments before them, can and will be used against him in court, as judges cite them to block policies. And if his losing record on immigration cases is any guide, they will be used effectively.

The earliest example of this is the courts blocking Trump's travel ban right after the election, citing among other things anti-Muslim remarks by Trump and others around him.

The latest example came June 24, when Judge George J. Hazel of the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland decided to take another look at the administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, in light of new evidence suggesting that the motive might have been to “shift political power in favor of white voters and away from Hispanic voters.”

Keep talking Mr. President. It helps your opponents every time you open your mouth.

What 'racist comments' do you refer to?

The "travel ban" was not a "Muslim ban." The court was wrong (and they likely knew it), but because they hate Trump, they over stepped their authority to block his Constitutional, lawful travel restrictions (based on law passed by Congress many years ago, giving the President such authority).

It is not for courts to decide "motive" for an action. It is only for the court to decide if it is lawful, and Constitutional. Given that the "Citizenship question" has been on the U.S. Census form up until Obama had it removed in 2010 - What was his motive?), I don't see any reason why it should not be re-added.

Not being "added" so much as being "put back" on the census, since it was always there until BO had it removed so all his sanctuary states can get billions more taxpayer money to pay for all the illegal aliens.

This is no different than people cheating on their taxes by listing more dependents than they actually have.

That is nothing more than fear mongering BS designed to dupe brain dead liberals into fake screeching racialism.

Trump has unleashed a trove of racist and xenophobic official statements (because every one of his tweets has been deemed an official statement by the administration) that portray his real reasons for many of the things that land him in court. Official statements by an administration, followed up with actions designed to carry out his stated racism and xenophobia, are absolutely fair game for the courts to consider.

If he just kept his mouth shut he'd probably be more successful in court. But it's his own big mouth that tips the court off as to what his real motives and objectives are.

I hope he never shuts up.

This is nothing more then wrong info. The citizen question has not been asked in the standard census form. Obama had nothing to do with the question.

If a judge believes anything he said or did was racist then that judge shouldn't be a judge and they need to go back to English class and read a dictionary.

Ask any minority what "go back to your own country!" means. I guarantee you that 100 percent of them will tell you it's racist and/or xenophobic. Intelligent people don't need an explanation as to why that is, because it's pretty obvious. Perhaps it is you who needs more education.

You're repeating yourself.

These are not "racist, xenophobic" statements.

"Land him in Court?" Do you realize how many times, in the end, the Court has decided FOR the Administration? It is the Leftist 9th Circuit that most often takes the administration to court, over-stepping it's authority (blocking the President's Constituitonal and legal authority). These judges should be removed from office (contrary to popular belief, they do not have "lifetime" appointments: "they may hold their office during times of 'good behavior'" the Constitution says. They may be removed by impeachment (for bad behavior). Overstepping their authority is "bad behavior."

It is not for the Court to determine "motive." The Court's only job is to determine if an action is legal or Constitutional. Period.

Doubtless Obama had ulterior motives for many of his actions. But because they were Constitutional (he had the authority to remove the citizenship question from the Census), and the Court liked him, he was not challenged.
