There is "certainly a possibility" that the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit could be broken up, according to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

"I think many of the Western states are weighted down by California," Cruz said Thursday in a radio interview, according to the Washington Examiner.

"California has a ton of very liberal-wing judges that they put on the 9th Circuit. I think a lot of the other western states would love to be freed from that corrosive left-wing influence," the Texas Republican added.

President Donald Trump said on Wednesday said that he is "absolutely" looking into breaking up the 9th Circuit, which contains judges who have blocked two of the president's executive actions.

"There are many people that want to break up the 9th Circuit. It's outrageous," Trump noted.

The 9th Circuit federal court has jurisdiction over nine West Coast states and two U.S. territories, according to its website.
