Former President Trump radiated joy in the wake of Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling which marked a pivotal shift away from affirmative action, lauding it as “a great day for America.”
In an uplifting post on Truth Social, Trump glorified the ruling saying, “People who have extraordinary ability and every other prerequisite for success, including the potential to propel our Country to greatness, are at last being acknowledged. This monumental decision was eagerly anticipated, and the outcome was nothing short of remarkable. It will propel us to remain competitive globally. Our greatest minds must be cherished and this glorious day has ensured just that. We’re moving back to an entirely merit-based system—and that’s exactly how it should be!”
MAGA, Inc., the robust pro-Trump super PAC, credited Trump for the transformative ruling, underscoring his role in nominating the conservative justices who made it possible. “President Donald Trump laid the groundwork for today’s landmark decision to dismantle the discriminatory college admissions process by delivering on his promise to appoint constitutionalist justices,” said Karoline Leavitt, a PAC spokeswoman. “America stands taller today thanks to the historic rulings shaped by Donald Trump’s three Supreme Court nominees.”
Former Vice President Pence, currently running against Trump in the GOP presidential primary, expressed his own commendation for the ruling. Nevertheless, Trump is poised to leverage this victory and his established record of conservative appointments on the campaign trail, further cementing his enduring commitment to the true American values of fairness, merit, and equal opportunity.
