Trump Doubles Down: Travel Ban Needed for 'Certain Dangerous Countries'

Trump Doubles Down: Travel Ban Needed for 'Certain Dangerous Countries'

President Donald Trump on Monday night responded to critics of his early morning tweetstorm calling for approval of his proposed travel ban by doubling down:

Trump's critics have charged the ban isn't constitutional because it unfairly targets Muslims based on their religion. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals cited Trump's rhetoric calling for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States" after his election, but before he was sworn into office.

But the White House argues the ban actually targets only countries with known ties to terrorism and is based on the same list compiled by the Obama administration.

Trump early Monday tweeted that the Justice Department should push for his original proposal that was rejected by the courts and not just the revised version.

That saw blowback from several quarters, including the husband of Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, who tweeted:

Republican strategist Karl Rove told Fox News that Trump "took out a Twitter gun and shot himself four times."
