We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 3, 2017
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2017
The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2017
The Justice Dept. should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down Travel Ban before the Supreme Court - & seek much tougher version!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2017
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2017
Today is the President's 136th day in office.
When he launched his travel ban, he said it was necessary to deal with an immediate crisis. He wanted 120 days to work up his EXTREME VETTING plan.
By his measure, the plan should have been out two weeks ago. If he and his team had a semblance of an act to get together, there'd be no need for a Supreme Court case.
But this week will be one in which EXTREME DISTRACTIONS will be needed. James Comey is testifying Thursday, so the President is holding a bunch of rallies for his EXTREME INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN.
The Guardian reported today on the morning's tweets and how they highlight the President's ADD issues:
Among the people who have insisted that Trump’s policy does not amount to a “ban” is the president’s own press secretary. In January, White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters: “It’s not a Muslim ban. It’s not a travel ban. It’s a vetting system to keep America safe.”
