President Trump is back to tweeting tonight about the travel ban, after sending out a few on the subject this morning.
In that intervening time, various White House staffers have dismissed the media’s “obsession” with the president’s tweets and Kellyanne Conway‘s husband took to Twitter to criticize the president for hurting himself with those tweets.
Minutes after both CNN and Fox News covered those earlier tweets tonight, Trump tweeted this out:
That's right, we need a TRAVEL BAN for certain DANGEROUS countries, not some politically correct term that won't help us protect our people!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 6, 2017
Despite how people around Trump have dismissed the idea that it was a ban, this tweet and others today makes it clear the president is sticking with that language:
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!
