Federal Judge Hands President Trump a Big Victory Against California

A federal judge knocked down a new Californian law requiring presidential candidates to disclose their tax returns in order to appear on primary ballots, which was clearly targeting President Donald Trump.

U.S. District Judge Morrison England Jr. issued the temporary injunction on Thursday and said he would put out a final order soon, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The law was seen as a swipe against Trump, who has resisted releasing his tax returns. His critics have accused him of covering up damaging information, but he is not required by law to release them, only by convention. . .

Judge England said that the law would cause “irreparable harm without temporary relief” for candidates including Trump. . .

California’s liberal lawmakers have emerged as some of the more vehement opponents of the president. On Wednesday, Gov. Newsom angrily denounced the president over his decision to end their waivers on federal automobile emission standards.
