Kellyanne Conway's husband says Trump tweets hurting legal case

Pelosi was asked what Trump meant by his comments calling for the enforcement of a ban on travel to the U.S. from several Muslim-majority countries.

In a series of tweets, the US President stressed that we need a travel ban to protect our people.

George Conway, a D.C. attorney and husband of Kellyane Conway, tweeted a note of caution on Trump's travel ban tweet.

Trump's legal team asked the Supreme Court last week to reverse rulings by lower courts and allow the revised travel ban to go into effect immediately.

Trump also tweeted on Monday that his administration was implementing tougher vetting of would-be visitors to the United States, adding: "The courts are slow and political!".

The administration filed emergency applications with the justices seeking to block lower court rulings that went against Trump's order barring entry for people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days while the USA government implements stricter visa screening. "The courts are slow and political!". Denniston has written for us as a contributor since June 2011 and has covered the Supreme Court since 1958.

Here's the potential problem: By suggesting his new order is a "watered down" version of the original, Trump is contradicting the Justice Department's argument that the revised order is different from the first.

The brief said the order did not violation the Constitution's ban on the government favoring or disfavoring any particular religion or its guarantee of due process.

"We will keep it free and keep it safe, as the media knows, but refuses to say".

But after its implementation led to chaos at U.S. airports and a series of legal challenges, his administration pulled the policy and he later signed a revised executive order. The narrower order temporarily halts entry to the USA from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen is necessary to protect US national security. His reaction on Twitter Monday: "Its kinda odd to have the defendant in Hawaii/Trump acting as our co-counsel". "The president's made that very clear: it is a travel ban".

The states maintained USA law contained many examples where the government applied immigration policies to certain groups differently and the president was well within his right to issue the order, The Washington Times reported Tuesday. But Trump's tweets about the courts arguably have brought more contempt on himself. "We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety", he tweeted.

CNN had been told previously Trump was expected to nominate Conway to run the Justice Department's civil division, which handles legal challenges to major administration initiatives, or even solicitor general.
