Biden denounces Supreme Court decision on presidential immunity

Biden says the justices removed restraints on presidents, including Trump, and undermined American principles

President Biden on Monday night issued a blistering attack on the U.S. Supreme Court for its decision earlier in the day declaring that Donald Trump was immune from prosecution for official acts he took during his presidency.

In brief but forceful remarks that came in a late addition to his schedule, Biden said that the high court was setting a dangerous precedent that could fundamentally change the world's most powerful office.

"For all practical purposes, today's decision almost certainly means that there are virtually no limits on what the president can do," Biden said, adding that he pledges "to respect the limits of the presidential powers."
