Conway was in contention to head the civil division of the Justice Department, which would have given him responsibility for defending the travel ban in court.
Travel ban or not, Trump is vowing to tighten security.
But Rove said Trump did himself the most damage in his final tweet in which he said the government already is doing "extreme vetting" on people coming into the country. It needs a compelling case to win a certain number of votes in order to be heard in the Supreme Court. "It's not a travel ban".
Critics and spectators have pointed out that explicitly calling it a ban and its implicit targeting of Muslims from Muslim-majority countries will hurt its chances of getting reinstated in the Supreme Court, as the institution's primary function is to ascertain whether legal rulings are in line with the Constitution.
"No reason to be alarmed", Khan said, describing a more visible presence as "one of things the police and all of us need to do to make sure we are as safe as we possibly can be". They replied that they had stopped, which contradicts Trump's Monday tweet.
By insisting on calling the policy a "travel ban"-notwithstanding his attorney's insistence to the courts that this is not what the policy about-the President undermines the Solicitor General's arguments about the nature of the policy.

Multiple federal courts have barred authorities from enforcing the order, saying it amounts to unconstitutional religious discrimination against Muslim, with judges citing as part of their reasoning comments Trump made when he was a candidate for president and before he took office.
This is a new first I believe.
"When we use words like 'travel ban, ' that misrepresents what it is", Spicer added. The narrower order temporarily halts entry to the USA from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen is necessary to protect US national security.
