Conway initially declined further comment on the matter, but later followed up on Twitter, noting his strong support for Trump, the executive order, and his wife.
But Conway on NBC denied the President's tweet had been a "political attack", pivoting to slam the apparent "one-sided report". "The pt can not be stressed enough that tweets on legal matters seriously undermine Admin agenda and POTUS-and those who support him, as I do, need to reinforce that pt and not be shy about it".
"I'll give her this: Kellyanne Conway has always been very clear Twitter is not Trump's way to communicate with the public".
The Trump administration has appealed the travel ban to the Supreme Court, which would rule on its constitutionality if it takes up the case.

Trump wrote. "The Justice Dept. should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down Travel Ban before the Supreme Court - and seek much tougher version!" Trump's nominee for the position is former Jones Day partner Noel Francisco. He withdrew from the nomination on Wednesday, after a very slow confirmation process.
He's completely correct, by the way-the reason the travel ban has been struck down by federal courts across America is that Trump's language is a dead giveaway that the ban is all about discrimination-not national security-and is therefore unconstitutional. Following the weekend's terrorist attack in London, England, President Trump used his Twitter account to critique the London government and fan flames of terrorist fear.

Conway again stressed, however, that the president's tweets "seriously undermine" his own administration's agenda, a point that has also been made by other legal experts.
