Supporters and critics of the president can at least agree on this: Donald Trump has experienced decisive victories and bitter defeats throughout his first term.

Those wins include a booming economy and two new Supreme Court justices.

Unfortunately, struggles persist. Funding for the border wall remains elusive and Democrats have opposed the administration's policies at every turn. 

Now, the president's frustration with defiant liberals may have reached a boiling point. (WesternJournal)

One of Trump’s biggest headaches has been in his dealings with sanctuary cities. After a federal judge’s ruling regarding California sanctuary cities, that headache could turn into a migraine for Trump.

According to Reuters, District Judge William Orrick in San Francisco ruled that the Trump administration cannot place conditions on public safety grants, known as the Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant, and also ordered grant money to be released to California sanctuary cities.

Of note, Orrick seemed aware that an appeal was likely. He stayed a nationwide injunction in anticipation of an appeal.

Orrick did, however, 
rule that the conditions placed on public safety grants by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions are unconstitutional.

Sanctuary cities continue to undermine the president's attempts to address illegal immigration and the myriad problems accompanying it.
