The Trump years haven’t been a continuation of a long term trend but rather a shocking explosion of unprecedented partisan opposition, according to Thomas Jipping of the Heritage Foundation. One element not considered by Jipping is that the Democrats' reliance on the courts to impose their agenda has increased drastically in recent years. We've seen evidence of this with various Democrat-nominated district court judges blocking Trump administration policies. Democrats have changed the rules of the Senate to fit their short term needs, including nuking the filibuster when they were in the majority, and nearly destroyed Brett Kavanaugh's life during his confirmation process.
