Kellyanne Conway has been a strong and hard advocate for the new President. She has never been one to shy away from a fight or a hard interview. During the campaign and throughout her time in the White she even went on notoriously liberal news outlets such as MSNBC and CNN.
But she has always seemed to find herself in hot water for some of her comments. She appeared on Fox News this past Thursday night where she maintained the White House is “fully confident” they “will prevail” in the lawsuit concerning Trumps executive order immigration ban.
This was just after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the restraining order filed against the executive order. The order would temporarily ban travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries in the Middle East and Africa.
Conway interviewed on the segment “The First 100 Days.” She maintained the ruling was simply temporary and interim and that the halt “does not affect the merits at all.” She said,
“We are fully confident that now that we will get our day in court and have an opportunity to argue this on the merits that we will prevail.”
She refused to comment on the next step the White House was going to take in this case and lawsuit. But she said the President will continue to collaborate with his lawyers in order to evaluate all his options moving forward. She further defended her boss by citing the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 which she argued gives the President broad authority to do anything and everything in his power to protect American citizens.
This is one of the most highly divisive issues of Trumps presidency and was a centerfold policy issue of his campaign. Their should be no doubt the President will follow through with his promises after the action he took with his executive order. He is not one to be underestimated and he has proven that ten fold.
