In an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital, former President Trump expressed his satisfaction with the Supreme Court's unanimous ruling on Monday, describing it as "both unifying and inspirational." He emphasized the significance of the high court's forthcoming decision regarding presidential immunity, underscoring its importance in legal proceedings.

The Supreme Court's decision marked a victory for the 2024 GOP frontrunner in his legal battle against Colorado's attempt to remove him from the 2024 primary ballot. The unanimous ruling favored Trump's arguments in the case, which has broader implications for similar efforts in other states aiming to exclude the likely GOP nominee from their respective ballots.

Central to the case was the interpretation of Article 3 of the 14th Amendment, which prohibits former officeholders who participated in insurrection from holding public office again. This ruling has set a precedent for challenges filed in over 30 states seeking to bar Trump from appearing on the 2024 ballot.

In an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital on Monday morning, former President Trump hailed the Supreme Court's decision as "a great win for America" and underscored its significance for the nation. He emphasized the impending decision on presidential immunity, arguing that without it, the presidency would be reduced to a mere ceremonial role contrary to the intentions of the Founding Fathers.

Last week, the Supreme Court agreed to review whether Trump enjoys immunity from prosecution in special counsel Jack Smith’s election interference case. The justices expedited the appeal process, scheduling oral arguments to commence on April 22, with a final ruling expected by late June. Trump's trial related to Smith’s investigation has been paused pending the resolution of this matter.

Furthermore, the outcome of the immunity decision will also impact Smith’s case involving classified records against the former president, although a trial date for this case has not yet been set. Trump lauded Monday's Supreme Court decision as a "big win for America," highlighting the unanimity of the 9-0 ruling as "both unifying and inspirational" for the nation.

In its unanimous ruling, the Supreme Court affirmed that "states may disqualify persons holding or seeking state office." However, the Court clarified that states lack the constitutional authority to enforce Section 3 of the 14th Amendment with regard to federal offices, particularly the presidency.

Justice Amy Coney Barrett, in a concurring opinion, emphasized the importance of maintaining national unity, especially during a presidential election season. She stressed the significance of the Court's unanimity in delivering a clear message to the American people, urging them to focus on the unity of the decision rather than the differences among the justices.
