Former President Donald Trump said Thursday in a wide ranging interview at Mar-a-Lago that he thought the Supreme Court case on his ballot eligibility was "well received." 

“I thought the presentation today was a very good one," Trump, now the front-runner in the 2024 GOP presidential primary, said in the press conference at his Florida estate. "I think it was well received – I hope it was well received.”

He spoke after the high court heard oral arguments in the case, the Trump v. Anderson, about whether Trump is ineligible to be on the Colorado ballot in this year's presidential election. 

The decision could have wide-ranging implications about whether he can be removed from state ballots across the country.

Trump also slammed GOP presidential primary opponent Nikki Haley during the press conference, saying he's not sure why she is still in the race. 

"I don't know why she continues but let her," he said, adding that she "actually did poorly in Iowa. She did very poorly in Iowa, actually."'

Trump also criticized the southern border crisis, stating that it's the worst it's ever been, with thousands of people flooding across. 

"We have the most unsafe border in the history of the world," he said, also stating that the U.S. will pay a "big price" for letting terrorists come across the border.
