President Joe Biden speaks to the media at the White House after a Supreme Court ruling on charges against former President Donald Trump pertaining to the 2020 election.

By a 6-3 vote, the court said presidents do have “absolute immunity,” affirming previous decisions of other courts that in effect granted all power to Trump or former Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton.

President Biden offered no responses to reporters’ questions regarding last week’s debate with former President Trump.

Biden stated, “This nation was founded on the principle that there are no kings in America. Each of us is equal before the law. No one, no one is above the law, not even the president of the United States,” Biden said. “But today’s Supreme Court decision on presidential immunity, that fundamentally changed. For all practical purposes, today’s decision almost certainly means that there are virtually no limits on what the president can do. This is a fundamentally new principle and it’s a dangerous precedent.”

“This decision today has continued the court’s attack in recent years on a wide range of long established legal principles in our nation,” Biden said in attacking the legitimacy of the nation’s highest Court. “From gutting voting rights and civil rights to away a woman’s right to choose to today’s decision that undermines the rule of law of this nation.”

The Supreme Court’s decision made it clear that there are legal constraints on a president within those boundaries — immunity applies only to official acts within the “outer perimeter” of the presidency and only when they do not appear or be obviously beyond authority.

But Biden, whose polling numbers have recently deteriorated after a debate with former President Trump, seems to want to use his platform to push for justice.

Biden went on to say, “I know I will respect the limits of the presidential powers, I have for three and a half years,” Biden claimed. “But any president, including Donald Trump, will now be free to ignore the law. I concur with Justice Sotomayor’s dissent today. Here’s what she said, she said, ‘in every use of visual power, the president is now a king above law, with fear for our democracy I dissent.’ End of quote. So should the American people dissent. I dissent.”
