Donald Trump praised the Federal Appeals Court that struck down the Obama administration’s executive order to prevent the deportation of five million illegal immigrants suggesting it was a “great day.”

Appearing at the Fox Business Network GOP debate on Tuesday, Trump said, “I was so happy yesterday when I saw that decision come down. It was an unbelievable decision.  And we don’t have enough of those decisions coming down.”

Trump said the reason Obama uses executive orders so much is “because nobody wants to listen to him, including the Democrats.”

“That was a great day and frankly we have to stop illegal immigration. It’s hurting us economically. It’s hurting us from every standpoint. It’s causing tremendous difficulty with respect to drugs and what that does to many of our inner-cities in particular,” explained Trump. “And it really is, was such an unbelievable moment because the courts have not been ruling in our favor. And it was a 2-1 decision and, it was a terrific thing that happened.”
