Shortly before climbing aboard Marine One enroute to Andrews Joint Base, where he later departing for the “Winter White House” in Palm Beach, Florida, President Donald Trump addressed the 9th Circuit Court’s decision to block is asylum executive order.
The executive order states that immigrants seeking asylum can only do so at an official U.S. port of entries.
Trump called the court “a disgrace” adding that an “Obama judge” who pulled the plug.
In addition, Trump said that “everyone” who wants to so the U.S. does so in the 9th Circuit Court because of the obvious liberal bias expressed in its rulings.
Here is the transcript of President Trump’s remarks about the court:
Q Your asylum policy has been put on hold.
THE PRESIDENT: Well, you go the 9th Circuit and it’s a disgrace. And I’m going to put in a major complaint because you cannot win — if you’re us — a case in the 9th Circuit and I think it’s a disgrace.
When people file — every case gets filed in the 9th Circuit because they know — that’s not law. That’s not what this country stands for. Every case that gets filed in the 9th Circuit, we get beaten. And then we end up having to go to the Supreme Court, like the travel ban, and we won.
The 9th Circuit — we’re going to have to look at that. Because every case, no matter where it is, they file it — practically, I mean practically — for all intents and purposes — they file it in what’s called the 9th Circuit. This was an Obama judge. And I’ll tell you what, it’s not going to happen like this anymore.
Everybody that wants to sue the United States, they file their case in — almost — they file their case in the 9th Circuit. And it means an automatic loss no matter what you do, no matter how good your case is.
And the 9th Circuit is really something we have to take a look at because it’s — because it’s not fair. People should not be allowed to immediately run to this very friendly circuit and file their case. And you people know better than anybody what’s happening. It’s a disgrace.
In my opinion, it’s a disgrace what happens with the 9th Circuit. We will win that case in the Supreme Court of the United States.
