Legal experts to Trump on travel ban: Twitter hurting cause

Critics suing the government, including states and civil rights groups, say there is little national security justification for the move and the ban is discriminatory against Muslims.

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 USA judiciary. Trump's persistence in pushing to reinstate the executive order suggests that the real problem here isn't one of national security, but of wanting to keep Muslims out of the United States, something that is both unconstitutional and unAmerican.

In a series of early-morning tweets, Trump urged the Justice Department to ask for an "expedited hearing" at the high court and seek a "much tougher version" of the order temporarily blocking travel to the USA from a half-dozen majority Muslim countries.

"The courts have ruled and the courts said this abused the executive powers".

According to CNN, Trump's tweets about the ban have already been used against the lawyers arguing on his behalf.

"These tweets may make some ppl feel better, but they certainly won't help OSG [Office of the Solicitor General] get 5 votes in SCOTUS [the U.S. supreme court], which is what actually matters".

Oh, how refreshing it is to have a president who does not kowtow to the liberal media and the D.C. establishment who think they run our country.

"Which is why I said what I said this morning", he wrote. Following the awful terrorist attack in London Saturday night killed seven people and injured 48 more, Trump seized the opportunity to be an asshole-sort of like he would a woman's crotch.

"There's a prima facie case that their briefing was factually inaccurate", Painter said, pointing to the petition's emphasis on the temporary suspension of immigration from the affected countries.

Last September when President Obama proposed increasing the number of Middle Eastern and North African refugees allowed into this country, 62% said his plan posed an increased national security risk to the United States.

"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.

"There's significant evidence these lawyers were not honest", Painter said.

But Conway's concerns echoed the sentiment of many on Monday, who seemed to agree that the tweets, which are nearly certain to be brought up in future litigation, could do nothing but hurt the Department of Justice's efforts.

But Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the Deputy White House Press Secretary who is also the daughter of the twice-presidential conservative candidate Mike Huckabee, was splendid in fielding hostile questions from the press about President Trump's repeated use of Twitter.

Taking the tweets chronologically, Trump began by contradicting his lawyers and insulting the judiciary. "I see this more as a client complaining about his lawyer".

Supreme Court litigator Andrew Pincus of Mayer Brown said Painter's theory is "entirely speculative".

On Friday, the Supreme Court asked the challengers of the travel ban to file responses to the emergency request by June 12.

"There is no reason to disturb the Fourth Circuit's ruling, which was supported by an overwhelming majority of the judges on the full court, is consistent with rulings from other courts across the nation, and enforces a fundamental principle that protects all of us from government condemnation of our religious beliefs", he said. But people from those countries seem to pose a much smaller terrorist threat than people from countries that were omitted from the order.
