BREAKING: Trump Supporters React to Supreme Court Win for Border Wall

Moments ago, per NPR, the Supreme Court has allowed the Trump administration to use military funds to build sections of the president’s desired border wall while litigation is ongoing.

A lower court had initially frozen the $2.5 billion in funds, and an appeals court had agreed. But the administration then asked the Supreme Court to review the freeze, and in a 5-4 decision the high court granted the stay late Friday evening.

That decision means the Pentagon funds can be tapped for now, so work can begin on four contracts that had already been awarded, which President Trump immediately tweeted was a major win for his signature campaign promise.

 

Trump supporters on social media reacted to the news with glee.

On Facebook Jessica Mercer wrote “Praise God.”

Gregory Kvidera wrote “the vote should NOT have been so close, sad.”

Jocelyn Minier wrote “wonderful news.”

 

Trump supporters on Twitter were equally enthusiastic.

Benny Johnson wrote “The. Wall. Is. Being. Built.”

Roger Durant wrote “congratulations yet again to TRUMP on another Victory”
