"Trump's most recent tweet wasn't only a contradiction to Sanders" comments on Monday.
Latest terrorist attacks in England have given Donald Trump the much needed fuel to reiterate his travel ban from certain "dangerous" countries. It now heads to the Supreme Court with oral arguments scheduled for next week.
WASHINGTON-The president of the United States is now attacking his own policy.
Critics say there is little national security justification for the move and the ban is discriminatory.
Trump argues the ban is crucial for safeguarding American security, and he has intensified his push for it in the wake of the weekend vehicle and knife attack in London that left seven people dead and dozens injured.
"People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!" he tweeted at 6:25am. The Trump administration asked the Supreme Court to reinstate the ban.
Ethics experts I consulted on Tuesday offered a wide range of opinions on that question, though they agreed the Justice Department will have to be careful not to take positions contradicted by Trump's tweets.
Even George Conway, who was seriously considered for a top Justice Department post and could have been representing Trump in the travel ban case, gave the President some pro-bono advice.
"Ironically, it makes more hard the very thing that Trump was demanding: the reinstatement of his immigration order", Turley said. The Supreme Court has requested lawyers involved in the case to submit arguments by June 11, although it remains unclear whether the highest court in the country will agree to take on the case.
"When we use words like 'travel ban, ' that misrepresents what it is", Spicer added. "The president's made that very clear: it is a travel ban". The revised order has also been stayed by the judiciary, and the case has now reached the Supreme Court for a final verdict.
On Friday, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Trump's own appointee, addressed an audience at Harvard and celebrated the fact that "the government can lose in its own courts and accept the judgment of those courts".
"Its kinda odd to have the defendant in Hawaii v Trump acting as our co-counsel", Katyal tweeted. So, the court is sure to ask, if we already have such a system, why would we need a "temporary" moratorium to create one? "His lawyers tried to justify it by saying it wasn't a travel ban, that it was just extreme vetting", Cardin told CNN. He may realize that he doesn't have the votes on the Supreme Court to uphold his ban, so why not blast away? Trump tweeted in one Monday morning.
The executive order banned new visas from being issued to people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days and also sought to halt issuances of new refugee admissions from around the world for 120 days. To overcome the legal hurdles, he replaced it with a new order in March.
