Trump Responds: "Unanimous Supreme Court Decision A Clear Victory For Our National Security"

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.

Censure and suspend the 9th justices. No more activism from the bench. Time to make examples of those who use their power for SJW activism at expense of fully established legal doctrine.

How to impeach a federal judge: "The United States Senate has removed judges from office for substantial questionable conduct, even if no crime was committed. For example, Judge Robert Wodrow Archbald was impeached and removed from office for improper business relationships with litigants. One reason for this may be the life tenure bestowed upon federal judges and the Congress' place in upholding the good behavior of judges." Probably a good idea to impose term limits as well...

Great 120 days after the 120 day ban, we get a 120 day ban ... so nowwww just all of a sudden they can do something? They'll just start working on vetting techniques and all the shit they were 'going to do' during the time the ban was to be in place because they've their political victory? All talk no action

All talk and no action? Refugee intake in down by 50% since Trump took office and now with the travel ban in place that number will fall further, something your dumb ass cannot assimilate, so please, continue to be cannon fodder on ZH... You and your link posting snoids are a persistent reminder of just how fucked up some people are...

The ninth was formed when there were few poeple lived out West which is why they have such powers. It is an outdated concept and should be broken into many unconnected pieces. Arizona wants out, and probably Oregon too. The Certiorari Act has to be anulled before we ever see any real justice in America.

"I feel a great disturbance in the force, as if millions of SJWs and snowflakes cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced"

Will Madonna want to burn down the Supreme court, now? What about Kathy Griffin? Whom will she "decapitate"? Will the antifa-ggots now attack the Supreme Court justices?

Trump needs to settle down. He's reading way too much into it.It shouldn't even have gotten this far.He needs to deal with with DOJ's internal sabotuers.

Well, I am sure Orange Jesus is gonna be high fiving all around, but does anyone think this is actually going to "keep us safer?"Pull the other one.  This is what he blew so much political capital on? So he can toot his own horn and walk around saying he won?Sorry Donnie, you won the battle but are going to lose the war. War being the survival of the USA as we know it.pods

therew ould be several hundred people alive today in Europe had the EU had a ban on immigrants without verifiable character references and other bona fides.still, maybe there are no terrorists in the US, maybe that bowl of M&M's does not contain a single one that contains C4 or arsenic.

You are correct that it does not make us one bit safer; however...Unanimous: All 9 agreed this is within the president's purview.  That is significant.  Because this battle was won, others will not need to be fought. Lower courts (not the 9th) will be less likely to kick it upstairs.He spent political capital, but he re-charged some political capital too.  I think this is an even trade.  The flyover counties are high fiving without a doubt.  This can only help him with the agenda and in the mid-terms. An energized base is never bad.We are only 5 months in.  You can't fix it all in one fell swoop.  In fact, you can't fix it all period.  Wars are won one battle at a time.  If his only accomplishment is creating a 6 to 3 connstitutional court, I will consider his presidency an extraordinary success. That is checks and balances in action.By the way, love your commentary.

so.. since the Supreme Court upheld Trump's Executive Order, does that mean that the 9th Circuit acted illegally?Of course, some people are above the law - and some some just swim around all day in a swamp of shit.. never mind.
