President Trump and Don Jr. issue responses to Supreme Court decision on travel ban


Following the Supreme Court’s announcement Monday that it will review the case on President Trump’s travel banPresident Trump and his son, Donald Trump, Jr. have responded with public statements.

The decision of the Supreme Court is seen as a major, if partial, victory for the Trump administration, as it basically allows the ban to be in effect, with an exception for immigrants who can prove they have a connection to a person or entitiy within the United States.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer posted an official statement on Twitter Monday morning, from President 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.”

President Trump himself hasn’t personally tweeted anything about the matter yet, but Donald Trump Jr. has already shot out two comments.

“SCOTUS upholds temporary travel ban. I guess the 9th circuit activism is wrong again???” Trump Jr. tweeted.

Then, a few minutes later, he added, “Btw 9-0 with no dissents is icing on the cake.”
