President Donald Trump’s “see you in court” tweet became fodder for jokes on social media after his initial immigration ban on seven Muslim-majority countries and refugees was rejected by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

After the court rejected Trump’s request to have his travel ban reinstated, the 45th president took to Twitter on Thursday, saying I’ll “see you in court.”

Trump's Tweet echoed his comments to the media referring to the ruling as “a political decision,” adding that “we’ll see them in court…it is a decision that we will win in my opinion very easily,” Fox News reported.

The panel of three judges that ruled in the appeal voted unanimously against resuming the ban.

“In short, although courts owe considerable deference to the President’s policy determinations with respect to immigration and national security, it is beyond question that the federal judiciary retains the authority to adjudicate constitutional challenges to executive action,” the court ruled, according to Fox News.

“…[The] Government has not offered any evidence or even an explanation of how the national security concerns that justified those designations, which triggered visa requirements, can be extrapolated to justify an urgent need for the Executive Order to be immediately reinstated,” the court added.

Following the decision, the Justice Department said it will be “reviewing the decision and considering its options.”

Trump's Tweet sparked widespread reactions on Twitter.
