President Donald Trump called for “serious action” to be taken over threats Senator Chuck Schumer appeared to make at Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh on Wednesday.

While speaking at the rally hosted by the Center for Reproductive Rights, Schumer warned Gorsuch & Kavanaugh they will “pay the price” over how they will judge June Medical Services LLC v. Russo, which is the first “major” abortion case since President Trump’s court picks have been on the bench,  according to Fox News.

“I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price!” Senator Schumer warned. “You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.” The New York Democrat also said the pair “won’t know what hit you” if they side in a way that hurts abortion access in a case before the court Wednesday.

President Trump responded to a video that Rep. Jim Jordan posted of Schumer making the remarks. Jordan captioned the video as follows:

“Today’s Left: First Schumer tells President-elect Trump: ‘You take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.’

“Today he threatens 2 Supreme Court justices: ‘You will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you.'” Video Below

Moments later, Trump added, “There can be few things worse in a civilized, law abiding nation, than a United States Senator openly, and for all to see and hear, threatening the Supreme Court or its Justices. This is what Chuck Schumer just did. He must pay a severe price for this!”

Prior to Trump’s tweets over the incident, Chief Justice Roberts condemned Sen. Schumer over his “dangerous” and “threatening” remarks.
