Critics of President Donald Trump's stalled travel ban say he may have undercut the government's defense of the measure when he bashed the Justice Department for asking the Supreme Court to review a "watered-down" version of the ban.
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. The original order indefinitely blocked the admittance of Syrian refugees and included Iraqis on the list of nationalities that are temporarily barred from entering the U.S. Conway, a former Justice Department job candidate, used his own Twitter account to criticize the president's tweets.

The Trump administration asked the Supreme Court to reinstate the ban.
