Trump blasted the 'watered down' travel ban revision and called for a much tougher version


President Trump renewed his call for a travel ban on migrants from certain high-risk nations this morning in a series of tweets that also criticized the new version of the ban that the Justice Department submitted to the Supreme Court. 

"The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C.," tweeted Trump.

The Department of Justice's petition asks the Supreme Court to determine whether or not Trump's order is legal after a ruling by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that the ban "drips with religious intolerance, animus, and discrimination."

The Trump administration always said that it would take the ban to the Supreme Court after the first two versions of the executive order were struck down by an appeals court in San Francisco.
