Biden Reacts to Supreme Court Ruling on Presidential Immunity

WASHINGTON—President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump on July 1 issued contrasting reactions to the Supreme Court decision that presidents have absolute immunity from prosecution for official acts.

Former President Trump, who may benefit from the ruling, called it a “big win for our Constitution and democracy.”

President Biden addressed the nation on July 1 in response to the ruling, saying that it “undermines the rule of law of this nation.”

“This nation was founded on the principle that there are no kings in America,” President Biden said, speaking from the Cross Hall at the White House.

“Each of us is equal before the law. No one, no one is above the law, not even the president of the United States. But [with] today’s Supreme Court decision on presidential immunity, that fundamentally changed,” he said.
