Barely a month after US President Donald Trump banned refugees and migrants from seven Muslim-majority countries from travelling to the United States, the contentious debate over the legality of the executive order still rages on. Trump’s administration suffered a setback last Friday when a Seattle federal judge temporarily suspended the immigration orders noting that the government had not provided rational and convincing evidence to support the ban.
Although the Trump administration through the Justice Department attempted to obtain a stay, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the application affirming the ruling by the Seattle judge while the legal battle goes on. The appeal bench heard held a seating on Tuesday night poked holes in the executive order with skepticism that the president has the executive orders as he claims. In case the Justice Department loses the case, it is most likely to launch an appeal at the Supreme Court.
None of this seem to be working out for the president has in several occasions taken to Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) to pen his discontent with the pushback to his orders. On Wednesday President Trump using his personal Twitter wrote “Big increase in traffic into our country from certain areas, while our people are far more vulnerable, as we wait for what should be EASY D!”
One may think the president was talking about an easy decision or easy defense for that matter-in other words closing down America’s borders and making the country a semi-isolationist state. However Twitter had a different interpretation of the same. Several of his 24 million followers themed in joke.
Elizabeth Warren said just less than a day after the Massachusetts senator become a hero on social-media after being shut down by Senate Republicans when he attempted to read a letter written by Coretta Scott King to oppose the nomination of Alabama senator Jeff Sessions for attorney general.
Some however wondered whether the president would retweet the Easy D prank from the official White House Twitter account -@POTUS, like he had done hours earlier when he attacked Nordstrom for dropping his daughter Ivanka’s clothing line.
