The White House has been consumed by chaos as Press Secretary Sean Spicer claimed that the Muslim Executive Order isn’t a ban in direct contrast to what President Trump tweeted yesterday.
On Monday, Trump tweeted:
If the ban were announced with a one week notice, the "bad" would rush into our country during that week. A lot of bad "dudes" out there!

Here is Sean Spicer at White House daily briefing saying the opposite:

Spicer said, “This isn’t about refugees. This is about travelers, so that’s what this is about.”
The chaos of the situation is all being driven by the incompetence of the President and his administration. The President is calling his Executive Order a Muslim ban. His press secretary is standing in front of reporters and claiming that it isn’t a ban.
This is not a functional White House. It is an executive branch being run by amateurs who are disregarding experts and the Constitution while making it up on the fly.
The Trump White House is already teetering under the weight of its own dysfunction.
They haven’t been in charge for two full weeks yet, and already Trump is driving the executive branch of our government straight into the ground.
