AAJ Statement on President Trump’s Continuing Denigration of America’s Justice System
Washington, DC—The following is a statement from American Association for Justice (AAJ) President Kathleen Nastri responding to President Donald Trump’s tweet calling the entire American judicial system “broken and unfair” in response to a district court ruling he disagrees with:
“It is alarming that the President of the United States is making a habit of denigrating America’s judicial system. The President is entitled to disagree with a specific ruling, but as one who swore to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, he should not undermine it by wrongly condemning America’s courts and judges."
The American Association for Justice works to preserve the constitutional right to trial by jury and to make sure people have a fair chance to receive justice through the legal system when they are injured by the negligence or misconduct of others—even when it means taking on the most powerful corporations.
