After the Supreme Court ruled on his claim of presidential immunity, Trump celebrated on social media, calling it a “big win for our constitution and democracy.”

The court’s decision gives Trump partial immunity, delaying his trial related to the 2020 election until after the November election.

The six conservative justices’ ruling makes it much harder for prosecutors to bring a case against Trump for actions he took as president.

Biden’s Special Prosecutor Jack Smith will have to restructure the case, as certain evidence is no longer allowed.

Trump has immunity for official acts, like his communications about election fraud, but not for unofficial actions.

The case now goes back to the trial court for further review, which could take months or even years. If Trump wins the presidency again, his appointees might drop the case.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor, one of the three liberal justices, strongly disagreed with the decision, warning it makes the president above the law.

BBC reported these details.
