Hillary Clinton mocks President Trump over travel ban ruling


Hillary Clinton may have lost to Donald Trump in the race for the White house, but that hasn't stopped her from teasing her former rival over what could be described as the first big legal setback of his presidency.

President Donald Trump suffered a significant blow in court on Thursday when the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals refused to reinstate a temporary travel ban he ordered blocking people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.

Clinton responded with only three characters "3-0," a reference to the court's unanimous decision.

The tweet is one of the most direct barbs she has taken at the Trump administration since attending his inauguration almost three weeks ago.

Since then she has shared messages expressing solidarity with Muslim immigrants in the wake of the travel ban and even referenced Lady Gaga's Super Bowl halftime show.

See everything Clinton has tweeted since the election:

The former Democratic presidential candidate has few public appearances since the election, recently appearing at the MAKERS conference via video to declare "the future is female."

But most of her sentiments have been shared via Twitter, where she also showed support for Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who was rebuked on the Senate floor for trying to read a letter written by Coretta Scott King, the widow of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

Trump, who has continued to use Twitter as his primary tool for communicating with the public since taking office, tweeted soon after the appeals court decision, "SEE YOU IN COURT."

Indeed, the legal battle over Trump's travel ban will likely end up before the Supreme Court.

The seat that once belong to Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia still remains empty, as Trump nominee Neil Gorsuch has yet to go before the Senate for confirmation. This opens up the possibility that the high court, split evenly with Republican and Democratic appointees, could reach a tie. Such a result would mean the lower court's ruling would stand.
