Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts offered a rebuke on Wednesday to President Trump’s description of a judge who ruled against Trump’s new migrant asylum policy as an “Obama judge.”

“We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges,” Roberts said in a Wednesday statement provided to Fox News. “What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them.”

Roberts added: “That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for.”
