Did Donald Trump Vow to Defy the United States Supreme Court?


Well folks, we can’t say we didn’t see this one coming. It looks like Dictator…ah…President Trump is tired of all this unnecessary separation of powers, and has now said he is ready to impose his travel ban despite what the Supreme Court of the United States might have to say about it.

Much to the chagrin of his administration, Trump has taken to Twitter to forcefully reignite his one-sided defense of his unconstitutional ban on immigrants from muslim-majority nations. And this time, it’s not just about blasting the courts, and it’s not just about blasting liberals.

The Independent explains the situation:

Last week, the Justice Department formally asked the Supreme Court to let a ban on visitors from six mostly Muslim countries and refugees from around the world to be put in place. The high court also is being asked to uphold the constitutionality of the Trump travel policy, which lower courts have blocked because it shows anti-Muslim prejudice.

According to the Associated Press, that directive that would go before the Supreme Court is a narrower version of the executive order the president signed during his first week in office. 

The second order removed Iraq from the list of banned countries. An indefinite halt to entry from Syrian refugees was replaced by a temporary pause. 

This time Trump is making it as clear as black and white that it is his full intention to implement the travel ban no matter where the Supreme Court lands when they decide whether it is constitutional or not.

In two tweets yesterday he proved to America he is more than happy to undermine the delicate legal process with which his own administration is handling. And along the way, he is happy to announce the the separation of powers can go to hell.

“People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!” he said in his first tweet, adding, “In any event we are EXTREME VETTING people coming into the US in order to help keep our country safe. The courts are slow and political!”
