On Thursday, President Donald Trump was dealt a legal defeat when a federal appeals court refused to reinstate his Muslim ban. It was not a wholly unexpected outcome given the widespread resistance to the executive order, but it was nevertheless an outcome that greatly frustrated the president.
Like usual, Trump took to Twitter to make known his disapproval of the ruling. Not long after the decision was announced, Trump tweeted (in all caps): “SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”
For Americans opposed to the ban, the ruling and this strong reaction were seen as a victory. People on Twitter began meming the president’s statement and poking fun at his choice of wording, which also happened earlier this week when he tweeted about “EASY D.” It also read strangely because the fate of the ban was quite literally just decided in a court, of all places. Thusly, #SeeYouInCourt was born.
