Kellyanne Conway criticizes media's 'obsession with covering' Trump's tweets
Jun 06, 2017, 06:19
The Counselor to the President appeared on NBC's "Today" Monday morning where she went head to head with Savannah Guthrie and Craig Melvin, saying the reason people are fascinated by Trump'stweets is because the media has an "obsession" with them.
Conwayasked, reminding viewers that President Trump promised to stand with the United Kingdom in the wake of Saturday night's London Bridge terrorist attack.
From outside the White House, however, the response to the tweets was unanimous from all points along the legal spectrum: Trump is not helping himself, and, to the contrary, he is making defending the executive order more and more hard. Conway, a former Justice Departmentjob candidate, used his own Twitter account to criticize the president's tweets. It is even more unusual for a president to blame the Justice Department for a policy shift that was made, not by DOJ, but by the president himself.
Trump's ban, which bars citizens from Sudan, Iran, Somalia, Yemen, Syria, and Libya who do not now have visas from entering the country for 90 days while the administration reviews its visa policies and bars all refugee entry for 120 days, is now being blocked by federal courts.
Conway was referring to the president's early morning tirade on Monday about his immigration executive order, in which he repeatedly emphasized that the order is, in fact, a "travel ban" and said that the revised order is merely a "watered down, politically correct version" of the first.
Pressed again if Trump owed the London mayor an apology, Conway dodged the question again, instead directing the conversation toward the attack itself. His use of the term "travel ban", for instance, contradicts a statement by Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly who denied the executive order constituted a "ban".
