He said in the tweet, "We need the courts to give us back our rights".

"Its kinda odd to have the defendant in HawaiivTrump acting as our co-counsel.We don't need the help but will take it!" attorney Neal Kaytal wrote on Twitter. The first order, which was signed at the end of his first week in office, was hastily unveiled without significant input from top Trump national security advisers or the agencies tasked with implementing the order.

US President Donald Trump called today for a "much tougher version" of his travel ban and an "expedited" hearing for the measure before the Supreme Court.

Mr. Trump had tweeted shortly after the London attack.

Rice said that the USA and other countries need to remain focused on recognizing and stopping homegrown terrorists, and that Trump's order doesn't help.

The leader concluded the series of tweets by stating that U.S. is "extreme vetting" those coming into the country, accusing the courts of being "slow and political".

Trump has previously ripped into the revised order (that removed Iraq from the seven countries listed in the January order), calling it a "watered-down version" in March and calling for a return to the original ban. Lower courts have blocked the Trump policy, citing various reasons including statements Mr. Trump made during the 2016 campaign.

Pittsylvania County resident David Scott hopes Trump's renewed call for a travel ban will make people realize that a ban is not necessarily what is needed, but rather a better way to vet people coming into the U.S.

"A travel ban is cannon fodder for the recruiters, it's the worst thing we can do", said former Secretary of State John Kerry.

The president's statement came via Twitter and was the first in a series of tweets on the subject.

In context, Khan was telling London residents to not be alarmed by increased police presence.

Trump politicized a terror attack in London on Saturday evening, using it as evidence to promote and justify his order, even before the full details of the attack became known.

President Donald Trump says he will do whatever is necessary to protect the United States from a "vile enemy" that he says has waged war on innocents for too long, vowing: "This bloodshed must end, this bloodshed will end".

The order blocks citizens of six predominantly-Muslim countries - including Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen - from entering the US.

Still, the courts have also blocked that directive.
