Hillary Clinton took to Twitter to mock President Trump on Thursday night after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the suspension of his travel ban. White House counselor Kellyanne Conway was quick to fire back.
Shortly following the court’s decision, Clinton tweeted “3-0,” a reference to the unanimous vote from the three judge panel that keeps the suspension of Trump’s executive order banning travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries in place.

Later Thursday evening, Conway responded on Twitter, noting three key states that were critical to Trump’s victory against Clinton in the presidential election. Conway was Trump’s campaign manager and became the first female campaign manager to ever lead a successful presidential campaign.

Meanwhile, it’s still possible that the Trump administration could appeal the ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court. Trump’s order called for a 90-day ban on the admission of any citizen of Iran or six other Muslim-majority countries, even if they have valid visas. The order was met with protests across the country.
Conway had a busy day on Thursday, as she also made headlines when she was counseled for a possible ethics violation after plugging Ivanka Trump products on Fox News’ morning show “Fox & Friends.”
