Trump says he's calling it 'travel ban'

Trump has said that the suspensions allow much-needed time to review the nation's immigration and refugee evaluation procedures to ensure potential terrorists aren't allowed to enter the country. "We don't need the help but will take it!" attorney Neal Kaytal wrote on Twitter.

Early in the administration, White House press secretary Sean Spicer outright scolded reporters for labeling Trump's plan a travel ban.

Trump's tweets could cause him additional headaches in court, as the Justice Department has tried to distance itself from the original order in defending the new one. Which is why I said what I said this morning. "He's also made very clear that this is not a Muslim ban".

Potentially making it harder for his lawyers to win at the Supreme Court, Trump again commented on the case on Monday, tweeting complaints that his own administration had issued a "watered down, politically correct version" of an earlier order he signed on January 27 that also was blocked by courts.

Over the weekend, Trump posted multiple jolting tweets over his controversial travel ban, the Justice Department, Democrats and even a sharp rebuke of the mayor of London.

"I don't think the president cares what you call it - whether you call it a ban, whether you call it a restriction".

But George Conway said in a series of tweets that Trump's use of social media certainly won't help persuade a majority of the Supreme Court's justices to uphold the travel ban.

In an interview Monday with Britain's Channel 4 News, Khan said he does not have time to respond to tweets from Trump and said Britain should call off a planned state visit by the US president expected later this year.

President Donald Trump's temporary travel ban has been the subject of much consternation for several months.

By insisting on calling it a travel ban, Trump has ramped up a debate over whether his tweets could jeopardize the Justice Department's case as it attempts to reinstate the executive order that restricts travel from six Muslim-majority countries into the U.S. Still, she said he'd signed the revised ban "for the purposes of expediency" and wasn't considering a third version of the ban.

The results come just days after a second terror attack in Britain in the past two weeks that left seven people dead, 48 others injured. The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the attack. And Trump has no one but himself to blame. "Sad", a message on the Twitter account of George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, stated, the Guardian reported. But Johnson said the invitation for Trump's visit has been accepted and he sees "no reason to change that".

OSG refers to the Office of the Solicitor General, which is who will have to argue the case before the Supreme Court.
