WATCH: President Trump Says He Expects the 9th Circuit Court to Block His National Emergency Declaration

President Donald Trump said on Friday that he is expecting the Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit to block his emergency declaration to build the wall — but that he will take it to the Supreme Court where he believes that he will win.

While the president was open about expecting to be sued for the National Emergency, he said that he believes the declaration will “get a fair shake” in the Supreme Court.

“We will possibly get a bad ruling, and then we’ll get another bad ruling and then we’ll end up in the Supreme Court,” Trump said during a press conference at the White House.

The 9th Circuit has been fairly consistently siding with liberal activists in lawsuits against the administration aimed at blocking actions by the president.

President Trump isn’t worried though, saying that this challenge will be “possibly the easiest one to win” because of a “virtual invasion” along the southern border.

“I think we will be very successful in court,” he said. “…Happily we’ll win.”
