Half support Trump travel ban

The Latest: Trump contradicts homeland security secretary

However, Trump tweeted after the weekend terror attack in London that, "We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!"

Judges in the cases have pointed to Trump's words on the campaign trail, as well as remarks by associates, calling for a ban of Muslims entering the United States to show that his intention was discrimination against Muslims, rather than a legitimate exercise of his presidential powers.

Trump's executive order with regard to travel ban for people coming from six Muslim majority countries - Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen - has been shot down by the U.S. judiciary. We need the courts to give us back our rights.

The second version of the ban, in contrast to the first one, did not include citizens of Iraq and modified the provision on Syrian refugees. Should the court decide to stay the current injunction while it considers the case, however, a formal ruling on the order could be purely academic. The original order issued by Mr. Trump soon after assuming office allowed prioritisation of religious minorities while admitting refugees from Muslims countries.

After that order was struck down by the courts, the administration made a decision to write a second directive rather than appeal the initial ban to the Supreme Court. In an interview, Jadwat said the president's tweets "seem to undermine the picture the government's been trying to paint".

Once again, we are debating Donald Trump and the Twitter phenomenon.

"In any event we are EXTREME VETTING people coming into the U.S.in order to help keep our country safe", Trump tweeted.

In calling the revised order "politically correct", Trump suggested that his goal throughout had been to exclude travelers based on religion. "I do not think the injunction included not being able to plan for vetting", said Leon Fresco, an immigration lawyer at Holland & Knight.

Presenting President Donald Trump's stymied travel ban to the Supreme Court last week, the Department of Justice has requested the court reinstate the travel ban until justices could rule on its constitutionality in October.

In the aftermath of the London terror attack, Trump retorted once again to the USA courts for blocking his attempted travel ban against people from six Muslim-majority countries.

George Conway later posted an analysis by the Washington Post that indicated that Trump's tweets on the travel ban could hurt the government's case in court.

In another tweet, he said: "We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people".

"I don't see that the president is picking a fight with the mayor of London at all", said spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders. His Twitter missive notwithstanding, Sanders insisted Trump "isn't concerned with what you call it", only with protecting Americans. Still, she said he'd signed the revised ban "for the purposes of expediency" and wasn't considering a third version of the ban.

What rational head of state attacks the mayor of a city that has just been hit by terrorists?

The second-guessing about Trump's Twitter strategy extended to the husband of one Trump's senior advisers.

Pelosi was asked what Trump meant by his comments calling for the enforcement of a ban on travel to the USA from several Muslim-majority countries. "If we don't get smart, it will only get worse", Mr Trump said.
