Trump's Monday Morning Tweets Cause A Travel Ban Crisis

It is, to say the least, highly unusual for a president to comment in such a belligerent way about a matter that is now before federal courts - the Trump administration asked the Supreme Court to reinstate the most recent version of his Muslim ban last week.

President Trump speaks in the Rose Garden on Thursday.

. In lower court rulings halting the order, judges have cited Trump's statements outside the text of the order as evidence that it unconstitutionally targets Muslims.

Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, retweeted a City Hall NY1 reporter's tweet of the mayor leaving the Prospect Park YMCA shortly after 10 a.m., a number of security officers escorting him to a black vehicle, adding, "An elliptical thinker that has his city on a treadmill. working out or working?"

"The Justice Dept. should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down Travel Ban before the Supreme Court - & seek much tougher version!"

She also called out former National Security Adviser Susan Rice for comments she made over the weekend criticizing the Trump administration's "Muslim ban".

"These tweets may make some [people] feel better", Conway tweeted, "but they certainly won't help OSG get 5 votes in SCOTUS, which is what actually matters".

Pressed again if Trump owed the London mayor an apology, Conway dodged the question again, instead directing the conversation toward the attack itself.

It requires an insane 12,000-foot runway, which is over two miles and considerably longer than a passenger jet's requirements. It added that it's begun preparations for delivering the launch vehicle to its Mojave facilities.

Omar C. Jadwat, the ACLU lawyer who argued the case in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, wrote that Trump's tweets amounted to "a promise: let me do this and I'll take it as license to do even worse".

Last week, Conway had removed himself from consideration to head the Justice Department's Civil Division, which defends presidential policies from lawsuits.

In a series of Monday morning tweets, Trump says the Justice Department "should have stayed" with his first executive order aimed at temporarily halting entry to the USA from a half-dozen Muslim majority countries.

He added: "We don't need the help but will take it!"

A tweet from Conway on Monday suggested one of the factors that may have contributed to his decision to drop out.

Earlier on Monday, Kellyanne Conway said the media had an "obsession" with covering Trump's tweets.
