Trump on Pipeline Decision by Judge: It’s a ‘Disgrace’

‘Well, it was a political decision made by a judge’

TRUMP: "Well, it was a political decision made by a judge. I think it’s a disgrace. It's 48,000 jobs. I approved it. It’s ready to start and they went and I guess they’ll end up going to the Ninth Circuit as usual. We’re slowly putting new judges in the Ninth Circuit. Everything goes to the Ninth circuit. Now, DACA, that was actually good news yesterday because you never win in the Ninth Circuit if you're on this half of the equation — when I say half, it could be half or more, but you rarely win in the Ninth Circuit. The good news is, by rejecting DACA in the Ninth Circuit yesterday, finally, we’ve been waiting for that, we get to the Supreme Court and we want to be in the Supreme Court on DACA. President Obama said he had no right to sign it. He had no right, but it was upheld in the Ninth Circuit as usual. If you take President Obama’s statement, he knew that he couldn’t sign it. So this whole thing, it's a terrible thing what’s happening with the courts. The DACA will now hopefully go to the Supreme Court where it will be given a fair decision."
