Trump Responds to Kennedy’s Retirement: We’ll Begin Search for New Justice ‘Immediately’

Visitors depart the Supreme Court early Monday

Visitors depart the Supreme Court early Monday

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has announced he plans to retire after three decades as a pivotal vote on the highest United States judicial body. (Six of the eight covered countries are mostly Muslim.) The court upheld Mr. Trump's order 5-4.

"By the time we march this thing down to the Supreme Court, the faces on the bench will be different", King told reporters at the time.

The court's reversal is viewed as a victory for the Trump administration.

At a White House meeting to discuss Mr Trump's proposed border wall he lauded the decision as "a tremendous success".

The judicial "resistance" to President Trump suffered a well-deserved defeat in the Supreme Court's "travel ban" ruling, Trump v. Hawaii.

Harley-Davidson to take big hit from European Union tariffs
A Harley-Davidson spokesman said the company had nothing to say in response to Trump's tweet beyond its filing with the U.S. Walker says increasing foreign investment will help with the trade imbalance and therefore lead to a reduction in tariffs .

"There used not to be filibusters of judges until the George W. Bush presidency, and now all the filibuster activity and precedents have been overruled, so we are looking at 51 to confirm or 50 plus the vice president", Cornyn said. "At a minimum, we have to make sure that we vet people coming into the country". "If we put another two, three justices on, that will happen. that will happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court".

Trump as a candidate called for "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States".

Roberts said the actions taken by Trump to suspend entry of certain classes of people were "well within executive authority and could have been taken by any other president - the only question is evaluating the actions of this particular president in promulgating an otherwise valid proclamation".

The ban prohibits most travelers from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen from coming to the country.

Protesters gather outside the U.S. Supreme Court as the court issued an immigration ruling June 26, 2018 in Washington, DC. Trump said his search for a Supreme Court nominee will "begin immediately" and he intends to make his selection from a list of more than 20 reliably conservative candidates the White House released previous year. Today's decision will only add bragging rights to the Trump campaign. He was born in Egypt, a country that wasn't affected by the ban, but he is still anxious about the message the Supreme Court ruling will send.

Media criticism of my lifestyle is 'unbelievable' - Sterling
England's Fabian Delph is ready to miss a World Cup match to be at the birth of his third child. The England manager said on talkSPORT: "It doesn't bother me in the slightest".

"This is the most important Supreme Court vacancy for this country in at least a generation", said Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) "Nothing less than the fate of our health-care system, reproductive rights for women and countless other protections for middle-class Americans are at stake".

In dissent, liberal Justice Sonia Sotomayor said there were "stark parallels" with the court's now discredited 1944 decision that upheld USA internment of Japanese-Americans during World War Two.

The challengers to the ban asserted that Trump's statements crossed a constitutional line, Roberts said.

Courts in several states found the measure was illegal, and did so again in March 2017 after the Trump administration slightly amended the original order, with Iraq dropped from the list.

European Union counter-tariffs against USA come into effect on Friday - commission
Jonathan Davis, owner of a wealth management firm, said the European Union was "on a hiding to nothing" by clashing with Mr Trump. Its biggest target has been China, against which President Trump this week ordered new tariffs on $200 billion worth of goods.
