Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: June of 2017
Categories: Donald Trump
Donald Trump unleashed multiple tweets in a matter of minutes that strongly criticized the Department of Justice for "watering down" his travel ban on six majority Muslim countries. The White House has constantly claimed that Trump's order wasn't a travel ban, but Donald Trump directly contradicted official White House statements and the position of the Department of Justice by tweeting: "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!”
