Former President Donald Trump warned of a possibly “terrible” ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court regarding his claims of presidential immunity.

While speaking to reporters at his Mar-a-Lago residence following Monday’s Supreme Court ruling upholding his ballot eligibility, Trump spoke about an upcoming hearing involving his claims of presidential immunity relating to the January 6 riots at the Capitol.

“Presidents have to be given total immunity, they have to be allowed to do their job,” Trump said. “If they’re not allowed to do their job it’s not what the founders wanted, but perhaps even more importantly it will be terrible for our country.”

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
