The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 on Monday that Donald Trump has absolute immunity from prosecution for official acts committed while he was serving as president.

President Biden also emphasized that the Supreme Court’s ruling made it so that there were “virtually no limits on what a president can do” and that the decision marked what he described as one of the “darkest days in the history of America.”

“This is a fundamentally new principal and a dangerous new precedent,” Biden charged in a fiery five-minute speech on Monday shortly after the ruling was announced.

“The American people deserve to have an answer in the court before the upcoming election,” the president added regarding the January 6 election interference case currently against Trump.

“No one is above the law,” President Biden charged further, “not even the president of the United States.”

The Supreme Court's three dissenting justices referred to the ruling as a “mockery” of the nation’s justice system.

“Today’s decision to grant former presidents criminal immunity reshapes the institution of the Presidency,” Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote. “It makes a mockery of the principle, foundational to our Constitution and system of Government, that no man is above the law.”

“The relationship between the President and the people he serves has shifted irrevocably,” she continued. “In every use of official power, the President is now a king above the law.”
