Kellyanne Conway's husband weighs in on Trump

Trump was off and running early Monday morning, with a series of four tweets attacking the Justice Department, the courts, and his own travel ban - the executive order he signed March 6.

The US President pressed his controversial travel ban plans on Monday morning following the weekend terror attack in London Bridge, calling for an expedited judicial review and urging his administration to seek a tougher version of the proposal.

Trump's power "cannot go unchecked when, as here, the president wields it through an executive edict that stands to cause irreparable harm to individuals across this nation", Chief Judge Roger L. Gregory wrote in the majority opinion May 25.

The revised order narrowed the scope of the original, but both have been blocked by lower courts.

"I am profoundly grateful to the President and to the Attorney General for selecting me to serve in the Department of Justice".

"These tweets may make some [people] feel better, but they certainly won't help [the Office of the Solicitor General] get 5 votes in [the Supreme Court], which is what actually matters", Conway tweeted.

Trump blasted his own Justice Department on Twitter on Monday, urging the department he oversees to to ask for an "expedited hearing" at the high court and to seek a "much tougher version" of the order temporarily blocking entry to the United States from a half-dozen majority Muslim countries. "Kellyanne and I continue to support the President and his Administration, and I look forward to doing so in whatever way I can from outside the government".

Last week, Conway had removed himself from consideration to head the Justice Department's Civil Division, which defends presidential policies from lawsuits.

Donald Trump has promised to impose travel restrictions on immigrants to the U.S. "in any event", as the Supreme Court considers his failed attempt to introduce a ban on people from some Muslim-majority countries.

George Conway did not criticize the ban itself, instead focusing on the president's remarks as possibly hurting the case to restore it.

He added: "We don't need the help but will take it!"

But Conway on NBC denied the President's tweet had been a "political attack", pivoting to slam the apparent "one-sided report". Later, he trollingly asked whether he and Omar Jadwat, another lawyer challenging the ban, should "cede our 30min at lectern" - the time to argue before the justices at the Supreme Court - to the defendant (as in, Trump) "to make case for us".
