Trump lashes out at DOJ over travel ban legal strategy

That said what exactly does President Trump have to gain by attacking his own administration on Twitter? "We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety", he tweeted.

In January, Trump signed an executive order temporarily blocking refugees from certain Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.

But such criticism does not have much impact on President Trump. Critics have assailed the ban as discriminatory and his reasoning for it as flawed.

In a series of early morning Twitter messages, Trump returned to the issue of the travel ban that he raised immediately after an attack in London on Saturday night that killed seven people and wounded 48.

As the lower courts have said that statements candidate Trump made out along the campaign trail can be considered in assessing the rationale for the ban, it would seem pretty clear that the Supremes will look at tweets made by President Trump in considering the constitutionality of the ban.

She noted that judges on a number of occasions have declared two executive orders issued by Trump to be unconstitutional.

Second, it is confounding that Trump blames the Justice Department for the second executive order, which he refers to as "watered down" and "politically correct".

The London attack , carried out by three knife-wielding men in a rented van, is apparently unconnected to the Manchester bombing. The 30-year-old had trained as a social worker at Mount Royal University before moving to Europe to be with her fiancee.

President Donald Trump can't be counted on to give accurate information to Americans when violent acts are unfolding overseas.

Trump is urging the Justice Department to seek a more hardline version.

"Ironically, it makes more hard the very thing that Trump was demanding: the reinstatement of his immigration order", Turley said.

"This beckons the input of the United States Supreme Court", says Abraham Hamilton III, who serves as general counsel and public policy analyst for the American Family Association.

Along party lines, Democrats are more likely than Republicans to view the executive order as anti-Muslim.

"When we use words like 'travel ban, ' that misrepresents what it is", Spicer added.

Legal challenges to the ban, including by the ACLU and Hawaii, reject the administration's claim that urgent action is needed to protect Americans from terrorist attacks. Travel Ban 2.0 was quickly seen for what it was - a gussied-up pig of a plan much like the first - and was also put on hold in the courts.

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".

"We need to be smart, vigilant and tough", the president tweeted as reports of the violence were coming in.

WASHINGTON ― Government lawyers trying to defend President Donald Trump's travel ban in court might be excused if they decide they are stuck with the world's worst client. He may realize that he doesn't have the votes on the Supreme Court to uphold his ban, so why not blast away? Katyal said in a tweeted response to Trump's posts on Monday.

Trump's ban, which bars citizens from Sudan, Iran, Somalia, Yemen, Syria, and Libya who do not now have visas from entering the country for 90 days while the administration reviews its visa policies and bars all refugee entry for 120 days, is now being blocked by federal courts.

NY lawyer George T. Conway III says Trump's Monday tweets taking aim at the Justice Department "may make some ppl feel better", but won't help win a majority in the Supreme Court.

Last week, the administration rolled out new policies for some people seeking USA visas who are deemed subject to greater scrutiny.
