Democrats bet big on this one court case.
If the left won this fight it could spell the end of Donald Trump’s re-election chances.
That’s when the Supreme Court stepped in and handed down one decision about 2020 that left Americans speechless.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
Donald Trump’s signature campaign issue in 2016 was a promise to build a great wall along the Southern border.
This February, Donald Trump declared a state of national emergency along the Southern border.
President Trump’s declaration allowed him to unlock $2.5 billion in military construction funds that became part of an overall eight billion dollar pot of money the President would use to build hundreds of miles of border wall.
Democrats knew they only had one option left – and that was to file a lawsuit.
If President Trump ran for re-election with the border wall being built, the President could rightfully claim to have fulfilled the biggest promise of his campaign.
Conversely, Democrats understood that Presidents running for re-election after failing on major promises – George H.W. Bush’s “read my lips” reversal is the prime example – lose.
Democrats scored the first victory in this case when a lower court judge permanently blocked the administration from using military construction funds for the wall.
Anti-Trump forces in Washington and the fake news media cheered.
Even though the Trump administration would appeal, time was the real enemy.
The wheels turn slowly in the American judicial system and Democrats hoped they could push the case beyond the Supreme Court term that would end next June.
But the Trump administration realized the play the Democrats called and asked the Supreme Court for immediate relief.
Justice Department lawyers requested the court lift the order blocking the military funds being used for wall construction while the case played out.
And much to everyone’s shock, the Supreme Court agreed.
The justices issued a ruling along five to four lines – with all the conservative justices siding with the administration and the liberal justices agreeing with the radical environmentalists suing the administration – that President Trump could use the military funds for wall construction while the case worked its way through the courts.
President Trump cheered the victory on social media.
“Wow! Big VICTORY on the Wall. The United States Supreme Court overturns lower court injunction, allows Southern Border Wall to proceed. Big WIN for Border Security and the Rule of Law!” the President tweeted.
Conservatives turning out in massive numbers in 2016 so Donald Trump could appoint Supreme Court justices paid off.
Trump’s nominees – Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh – provided the decisive votes in this case.
The environmental groups vowed to continue the fight.
But that is an empty threat.
The Supreme Court ruling the border wall construction can proceed means the court will likely rule in Trump’s favor once this case reaches the Supreme Court.
That’s because the left is claiming border wall construction will permanently harm the environment, so it is highly unlikely the justices would allow construction to proceed only to turn around months later and rule against the administration when the relief the environmental groups were asking for is no longer able to be given.
