President Donald Trump doubled down on a controversial executive order banning travel to the US from six majority-Muslim countries in a series of tweets Monday morning.

“People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!,” Trump tweeted.

Trump appeared to blame the Department of Justice, run by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, for moving forward with a “watered down” version of the policy.

“The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C.,” the president tweeted Monday morning, referring to a new version of the policy that has been referred to the Supreme Court.
