Moments ago, the Supreme Court handed Trump a major 5-4 victory in favor of President Trump’s travel ban! The Neil Gorsuch appointment came through once again!
As CNBC points out, the 5-4 opinion states that Trump’s immigration restriction fell “squarely” within the president’s authority. The court rejected claims that the ban was motivated by religious hostility.
“The [order] is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” Roberts wrote. “The text says nothing about religion.”
Here was President Trump’s immediate reaction:
SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN. Wow!

“SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN. Wow!”, Trump tweeted.
Here is more reaction from Twitter:

Thank you, God, that Hillary Clinton isn't president & thank you that Merrick Garland isn't a Supreme Court Justice.

SCOTUS upholds travel ban. Predictable. Yuge.@POTUS, Bannon and Miller were right on this…

Travel ban upheld!
Big win for safety, rule of law, and America
People from countries that hate us should have to undergo extra vetting and scrutiny
Trump proven correct, again! #MAGA

5-4 #SCOTUS finds travel ban 3.0 is within Pres @realDonaldTrump executive power. Case reversed and sent back to lower court for more action. Majority found statements by Pres didn’t factor in to consideration of text of the Proclamation. “The text says nothing about religion.”
