George Conway, husband of presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, scolded President Donald Trump in a tweet Monday morning following Trump's series of Twitter messages blasting the legal dispute over his travel ban.
The administration's lawyers and White House spokesman Sean Spicer have argued that the executive order has no connection to Trump's campaign calls for a temporary "Muslim ban" and have disputed the characterization of the order as a travel ban.
The poll also finds that half of Americans (50%) favor the measure which would temporarily halt travel to the USA from Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen, countries known to have ties to terrorism.
The Justice Department last week filed an appeal with the Supreme Court asking it to hear an appeal in one travel ban case in which the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the administration.Other cases are still awaiting rulings from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
The president's attempts to impose a travel ban - much less to build an worldwide coalition against terrorism - aren't helped by his transgressive attacks on a rotating list of targets. The administration quickly crafted a second version of the ban, which dropped Iraq from the list of targeted countries and removed overt religious language in an effort to pass constitutional hurdles, but was also quickly blocked by federal courts.
When asked whether Trump owed Sadiq an apology for his tweets, Conway defended the president saying it wasn't a "political attack".

Neal Katyal, an attorney for the state of Hawaii, which challenged the ban, said the president's comments only bolstered its case. "The courts are slow and political".
Trump had originally issued a policy that banned travellers from seven countries and halted the admission of most refugees.
Trump's tweets made no mention of his own role in signing the new order and suggested he hoped to enact a tougher policy. "We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people".
Trump undermined those arguments on Monday when he lashed out at what he called a "watered down" and a "politically correct" version and seemed to criticize his own Justice Department's handling of the case. Trump said the mainstream media was "working hard to sell" the words by Khan, with whom Trump has feuded in the past over the proposed travel ban.
"We need to be smart, vigilant and tough", the president tweeted as reports of the violence were coming in. Still, she said he'd signed the revised ban "for the purposes of expediency" and wasn't considering a third version of the ban.
The ACLU replied quickly, noting that Trump has "confirmed the ban is a BAN" while also conceding that the second executive order issued in March was substantively the same as the first. "The president is fulfilling his solemn duty to protect Texans and all Americans".
