Hillary Clinton took to Twitter to crow about the unanimous federal appeals court ruling stating President Trump could not ban refugees from 7 terror-infected counties.

“3-0,” Clinton tweeted tauntingly after the decision was handed down Thursday evening, referring to the three judges ruling against her former opponent.
A federal appeals court ruled unanimously that the U.S. will remain open to refugees and visa holders from seven Muslim-majority countries, rejecting a bid by the Trump administration to reinstate a travel ban in the name of national security.
The San Francisco-based appeals court on Thursday spurned the government’s request to close the doors after days of public debate over President Donald Trump’s attacks on the judicial system and a rush of fearful immigrants. The ruling increases the likelihood that the administration will ask the Supreme Court to step into a case that’s the biggest test of Trump’s executive power yet.
Trump vowed to continue fighting for the national security of the country.
SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!

“See you in court,” he tweeted in all capital letters, “the security of our nation is at stake!”
Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway responded to Clinton, reminding her the president broke through the so-called “blue wall,” winning Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan.
