Hillary Clinton Tweets About Court's Travel Ban Ruling

Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton responded to a decision that effectively halted an executive order from President Donald Trump.

She wrote "3-0" in a tweet, which was largely perceived as a response to the unanimous decision by a three-judge panel to stop Trump's controversial executive order that bans immigrants entering the U.S. from seven Muslim-majority countries.

The former secretary of state's three-character tweet went viral with more than 100,000 retweets by supporters who were eager to champion their failed candidate, who has been largely silent since her unexpected loss in the presidential election.

"So far, 110K likes on Trump's tweet about the #ninthcircuit decision. 140K likes on Hillary's response," tweeted former Clinton adviser Peter Daou. "STILL winning the popular vote."

"I love you deeply," wrote author Julie Klam, responding to Clinton's tweet.

Democrats, who are the minority in both the House and the Senate and have been unable to stop any of Trump's Cabinet picks so far, parlayed the federal court case against Trump's ban as a win.

"President Trump ought to see the handwriting on the wall that his executive order is unconstitutional," said Democratic Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York, according to USA Today. "He should abandon this proposal, roll up his sleeves and come up with a real, bipartisan plan to keep us safe."

Democratic House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California said the ruling was "a victory for our Constitution and our fight against terrorism."

"For the sake of our values and the security of America, Democrats will continue to press for President Trump’s dangerous and unconstitutional ban to be withdrawn,” Pelosi said.
