President Donald Trump has declared victory after a federal judge blocked a California law that would have forced him to release his tax returns as a requirement for appearing on the state’s primary ballot.

In a ruling issued Tuesday, Oct. 1, Judge Morrison England Jr., a George W. Bush appointee, blocked the law, stating that the law is ultimately unconstitutional. “I won the right to be a presidential candidate in California, in a major Court decision handed down yesterday,” President Trump tweeted.

“It was filed against me by the Radical Left Governor of the state to tremendous Media hoopla. The VICTORY, however, was barely covered by the Fake News. No surprise!”

The law, which was signed by Gov.Gavin Newsom of California in July, requires that candidates running in the state’s presidential primary release five years of federal tax returns in order to appear on the ballot.

In his decision, England argued that the law could create a slippery slope whereby states could require the release of irrelevant information. “The list of allegedly ‘relevant’ information required to obtain ballot access could, therefore, snowball out of control with no practical limitation,” he wrote.

“Allowing individual states to potentially adopt disparate and inconsistent qualifications for presidential primary candidates tramples the Framers’ vision of having uniform standards for the qualifications of those individuals running for President,” England added.

Newsom has been vocally supportive of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump. The governor of California has also impeded the president’s recent efforts to revoke California’s authority to set its own vehicle emissions standards.
