U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday said the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding his travel ban targeting several Muslim-majority countries was a victory for Americans and “a moment of profound vindication” for his policy.

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a tremendous victory for the American people and the Constitution,” he said in a statement. “This ruling is also a moment of profound vindication following months of hysterical commentary from the media and Democratic politicians who refuse to do what it takes to secure our border and our country.”
