Legal experts to Trump on travel ban: Twitter hurting cause

President Donald Trump lashed out at his own Justice Department on Monday for seeking the Supreme Court's backing for a "watered down, politically correct version" of the travel ban he signed in March instead of pursuing a broader directive that was also blocked by the courts.

President Trump's tweets are undermining the legal case for his travel ban, according to a host of legal experts including the husband of top White House aide Kellyanne Conway.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly has said that the current blocking of President Donald Trump's "travel ban" has been limiting the US' ability to keep "potential wrong-doers" out of the country. He assailed the Justice Department for a revised version of the measure that he called "watered down" and "politically correct".

Conway may be right: In February, the U.S. Court of Appeals ruling stopping Trump from reinstating his travel ban read that "it is well established that evidence of objective beyond the face of a challenged law may be considered".

Mr Trump also found himself in hot water over his tough-talking tweets defending his ban on travellers from several Muslim countries, which is now stalled in the federal courts.

"He cares that we call it national security and that we take steps to protect the people of this country. The courts are slow and political!" the USA president tweeted.

At the White House's daily press briefing, Sanders discussed Trump's proposed immigration policy, saying that "the President isn't concerned with what you call it".

He said: "I could see on my left a further individual was having CPR performed on them by the emergency services". Officers were seen dragging startled diners and revellers out of restaurants and bars and telling them to run.

Just 10 days into the Oval Office and the US President signed an executive order placing a travel ban into America for citizens from seven countries.

Accusing Trump of bias, they said the US President did not take action against those countries due to vested interest, citing his business ties with the Gulf.

United States President Donald Trump seized on the London terror attack to demand the USA ban on travellers from some Muslim countries be reinstated, sparking a diplomatic row with Britain and jeopardising his legal defence of the measure in the process. Trump also confirmed on the social media platform that the executive order is indeed a travel ban.

President Trump reignited the debate over his travel ban after this weekend's terrorist attack in London that killed 7 people. It deleted Iraq from the list and removed an indefinite ban on Syrian refugees.

Forty percent feel the Supreme Court is unlikely to uphold the ban, which impacts travelers from Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. And the need for this executive order is very clear. "A temporary pause on entry from countries with heightened security concerns is necessary to shore up our nation's vetting procedures".

Aside from Texas, the officials were Republican state attorneys general from Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee and West Virginia, as well as Mississippi's Republican governor.
