President Donald Trump called on Joe Biden to do two major things on Monday afternoon, following a victorious ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court that reversed a decision in Colorado that stripped Trump’s name from the 2024 ballot.

During a press conference held at his home, Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida, Trump celebrated the big legal win, describing it as a “BIG DAY for America [and] I think it’s a big day for LIBERTY, and I think it’s just a great day for this country.”

He pivoted into more solemn remarks during his comments, focusing heavily on the importance of presidential immunity and zeroing in on the legal persecution he has faced since leaving office.

Trump strongly accused Biden of spearheading the legal cases, 14th Amendment ballot challenges, and four indictments that have taken place over the past year or so.

He said his first message to Biden was to “stop weaponization…fight yourself – don’t use prosecutors and judges to go after your opponent.”

“Our country’s much bigger than that,” he continued.

The president also asked Biden to “close the borders now” in a second call to action. “This is not sustainable for our country,” he explained.

“I say, respectfully to President Biden, you have the authorization RIGHT NOW,” Trump went on. “…Use my policies, my policies were great.”

Trump argued strongly in defense of presidential immunity, in a case that will now be taken up by the U.S. Supreme Court. He said that a president shouldn’t have to worry about being prosecuted by the opposing political party the second they step out of office.

He said, “A president shouldn’t have that on his mind, and he has to have a free and clear mind when he makes very big decisions or it’s going to be nothing more than a ceremonial post.”

Trump added, “Because who wants to leave office and go through what I’ve gone through?”

The president derided the stacked legal deck, slamming “trump haters” who sit on the judicial benches and the prosecutors and district attorneys who “are in total coordination with the White House.”

Despite the somber tone, he ultimately ended his remarks with a dose of hope, stating that he believed the Supreme Court decision on Monday would ultimately unify the country.

“It’s a big step toward unification,” he said.
