President Trump Calls Travel Ban Ruling 'Tremendous Victory'

On Tuesday, The Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the latest version of President Trump's travel ban. Trump has called it a "tremendous victory" and remarked about the "hysterical commentary" from his critics who accuse him of racism and religious hatred. 

“This ruling is also a moment of profound vindication following months of hysterical commentary from the media and Democratic politicians who refuse to do what it takes to secure our border and our country,” he said.

The court's 5-4 ruling gave the president a reaffirmation of the extensive powers the Constitution and Congress have granted him when it comes to national security decisions, he said. 

The justices on the court did not hold Trump's anti-Muslim statements against him and said that he had the powers to do what he said. Voters and Congress have the ultimate job of deciding whether he is right or wrong in his decisions.

President Trump claims the critics lost and he won after comparing him to a 'tyrannical king' and predicting the courts would punish him for his decision to ban certain religions and races from entering the country. 

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a tremendous victory for the American people and the Constitution. The Supreme Court has upheld the clear authority of the president to defend the national security of the United States,” he said in a statement issued by the White House.
