U.S. President Donald Trump appears likely to win his travel ban case at the Supreme Court.The ban's challengers almost certainly need the support of one of those two justices if the court is to strike down the ban on travelers from several, mostly Muslim, countries.Justice Sonia Sotomayor was the most aggressive questioner of Solicitor General Noel Francisco in his defense of the Trump policy, and the three other liberal justices also raised questions about it. Kennedy challenged lawyer Neal Katyal, representing the challengers, about whether the ban would be unending.Francisco told the justices that they shouldn't look at Trump's campaign statements.The travel ban is the first Trump policy to undergo a full-blown Supreme Court review.Trump's campaign pledged to shut down Muslims' entry into the U.S. His presidential tweets about the travel ban and last fall's retweets of inflammatory videos that stoked anti-Islam sentiment all preceded the justices' questioning of Francisco, defending the ban, and Katyal, the former acting solicitor general under President Barack Obama.
