In four tweets on Monday morning, President Donald Trump doubled down on his “travel ban” and criticized his own Justice Department for watering down the original ban – out of political correctness, he said.
The four tweets, printed below, started coming at 6:30 a.m.
— “People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN.
— The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C.”
–The Justice Dept. should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down Travel Ban before the Supreme Court – & seek much tougher version!
–In any event, we are EXTREME VETTING people coming into the U.S. in order to help keep our country safe. The courts are slow and political!”
