Trump Attacks Supreme Court Ruling During Friday Morning Meltdown

President Donald Trump seems focused on trying to make people disbelieve their own eyes, apparently, at least when it comes to whether or not his policy agenda is successful. He’s been freaking out after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in a decision released this week — Trump had tried to end the program, which protects some undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children from deportation. On Friday morning, Trump ludicrously claimed that “nothing was lost or won” in the DACA case at all, as if he was trying to wish the Supreme Court’s ruling out of existence.

He’s playing egomaniacal mind games, basically. He tweeted:

‘The Supreme Court asked us to resubmit on DACA, nothing was lost or won. They “punted”, much like in a football game (where hopefully they would stand for our great American Flag). We will be submitting enhanced papers shortly in order to properly fulfil the Supreme Court’s ruling & request of yesterday. I have wanted to take care of DACA recipients better than the Do Nothing Democrats, but for two years they refused to negotiate – They have abandoned DACA. Based on the decision the Dems can’t make DACA citizens. They gained nothing! @DHSgov’

The fact that Trump tagged the Department of Homeland Security’s Twitter account as if he’s not the president and can’t just call them on the phone is a fitting reminder of his ludicrous incompetence.

His suggestion that “nothing was lost or won” in the Supreme Court case on DACA is false. The Supreme Court’s ruling wasn’t a suggestion! They determined that the Trump administration had violated the Administrative Procedure Act with their attempted ending of DACA. The court called the Trump administration’s attempt to end DACA “arbitrary and capricious.” That’s not ambiguous!

Early Friday, he also complained about new Fox polling that shows Biden ahead and added a threat against potential protesters who might show up at his rally in Oklahoma this weekend.
