In a series of morning tweets, President Trump said the Justice Department should seek a “much tougher version” of his revised travel ban, and criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan for his remarks in the aftermath of Saturday’s London attack. George Conway, the husband of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway who was recently considered for solicitor general, said Trump’s tweets “certainly won’t help” the Justice Department’s case before the Supreme Court. The White House said Trump will not block former FBI Director James Comey from testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday. Trump announced plans to privatize the U.S. air traffic control system. Authorities in London identified two of the three London attack suspects.
