Many have been waiting with bated breath all morning for Trump's response on the Supreme Court's decision regarding his travel ban. While we expected that response would come in the form of a snarky tweet, it has unfortunately been revealed via a more carefully crafted official statement.
Here is the full text:
Statement from President Donald J. Trump
Today's unanimous Supreme Court decision is a clear victory for our national security. It allows the travel suspension for the six terror-prone countries and the refugee suspension to become largely effective.
As President, I cannot allow people into our country who want to do us harm. I want people who can love the United States and all of its citizens, and who will be hardworking and productive.
My number one responsibility as Commander in Chief is to keep the American people safe. Today's ruling allows me to use an important tool for protecting our Nation's homeland. I am also particularly gratified that the Supreme Court's decision was 9-0.
Of course, we're sure that today's ruling is also "particularly gratifying" for the Trump administration in light of their previous accusations that rulings by the 9th district court in San Francisco were politically motivated.
Well, as predicted, the 9th Circuit did it again - Ruled against the TRAVEL BAN at such a dangerous time in the history of our country. S.C.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2017
