Supreme Court Sides with Trump on Anti-Muslim Travel Ban in 5-4 Ruling

The U.S. Supreme Court has just handed down a 5-4 ruling siding with President Donald Trump, saying his anti-Muslim travel ban is constitutional.

MSNBC's Pete Williams says the Supreme Court rejected the argument that Trump's anti-Muslim animus was obvious in his campaign statements and tweets, even as president.

The Court claims Trump has the power to impose the ban as a matter of national security.
