The Supreme Court decided Monday to let President Trump's travel ban go into effect with restrictions, a decision Trump himself praised as a "clear victory for our national security." In a statement per the Hill, Trump said the ruling "allows me to use an important tool for protecting our nation's homeland." He also made a point to note that it was a 9-0 decision. Earlier, the president had a busy morning on Twitter, where he said he was due an apology over the various Russia investigations, reports Politico.

"The real story is that President Obama did NOTHING after being informed in August about Russian meddling," the president wrote in a two-part tweet, referring to this story. “With 4 months looking at Russia under a magnifying glass, they have zero 'tapes' of [Trump] people colluding. There is no collusion & no obstruction. I should be given apology!" He also wrote that Obama didn't go after Russia more aggressively because he assumed Hillary Clinton was going to win. Obama "colluded or obstructed, and it did the Dems and Crooked Hillary no good," Trump tweeted. (More President Trump stories.)
