Memo from legal experts to President Donald Trump on resurrecting his stalled travel ban: Put down the Twitter.

Late last month Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly asserted that Trump's executive order on travel restrictions is "not a travel ban".

The lawyers on the other side, fighting the Trump team in court, were quick to say they were pleased by his comments.

Melvin later said coverage of Trump's tweets has been so closely followed because it's his "preferred method of communication with people", noting he hasn't had an interview in weeks. We need the courts to give us back our rights. Katyal wrote in his own Twitter post.

Iraq was removed from the list of banned countries in the second order and an indefinite halt to entry from Syrian refugees was replaced by a temporary pause.

The appeals court had found that the plaintiffs in the case were likely to succeed at trial in showing that the policy violates U.S. constitutional prohibitions on religious discrimination. Trump also repeated his assertion that the second order is a "watered down" version of the first. Conway said. "I'm just not going to allow it".

That version, which unilaterally revoked visas from tens of thousands of people from seven Muslim majority countries, was seen as much harder to defend because it was much more onerous and had a provision in the text itself that seemed created to exempt Christian travelers.

"The Justice Department should have stayed with the original Travel Ban", not the scaled-down version that is now before the high court, he added.

But even though Trump has now stated clearly that his executive order is indeed a "travel ban", the Supreme Court could still rule that such a ban does not discriminate against Muslims, at least based on the Monday statements in which Trump doesn't mention a particular religion to be targeted by the ban.

President Donald Trump speaks during a bill signing at White House last Friday.

Trump misconstrued that statement, and went on to accuse Khan of making up a "pathetic excuse" for his remarks.

Nonetheless, a federal court again rejected the ban. The Trump administration argues that the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals made several mistakes in its recent ruling against the president's executive order. Still, she said he'd signed the revised ban "for the purposes of expediency" and wasn't considering a third version of the ban.

Trump argues that the ban is crucial for safeguarding American security, and he has intensified his push for it in the wake of the weekend van and knife attack in London that left seven people dead and dozens injured.

Conway didn't answer Guthrie's question, instead the president's adviser focused on the eradication of the Islamic State. He said they may help some people "feel better" but won't help get five votes on the Supreme Court.

It was unclear whether Trump had communicated his displeasure to the DOJ through traditional channels or merely via Twitter.

"These difficulties are amplified exponentially when the client is the president of the United States, and he continuously sabotages his lawyers, who are struggling to defend his policies in an already hostile arena, " he said. It's unclear whether the president has conveyed his requests to the department in a forum other than Twitter. And he wishes the Department of Justice had stuck with the original version. Khan's spokesman said he was too busy to respond to Trump's "ill-informed" tweet.

Washington -President Donald Trump seized on the London terror attack to demand the U.S. ban on travellers from some Muslim countries be reinstated on Monday, sparking a diplomatic row with Britain and jeopardising his legal defence of the measure in the process.
