GOP Senators Blast Trump's Immigration Ban: 'It May Help Terror Recruitment'

Trump responded hours later, calling the senators from Arizona and SC "weak on immigration" and accusing them of "always looking to start World War III".

It was the strongest criticism Trump has faced yet from the right, as congressional leaders largely deflect questions about the ban and aides say Trump is doing exactly what he pledged he'd do on the campaign trail.

"The two. Senators should focus their energies on ISIS, illegal immigration and border security instead of always looking to start World War III", he added, using an acronym for Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group. "That is why we fear this executive order may do more to help terrorist recruitment than improve our security", McCain and Graham said.

Hopefully, this means the Senate will do all it can to block this order. "We should not stop green-card holders from returning to the country they call home", their statement said.

John McCain expressed his concerns about the president's executive order to ban refugees from seven Middle East countries. We should not stop those who have served as interpreters for our military and diplomats from seeking refuge in the country they risked their lives to help.

Trump made the remarks in a number of tweets on Sunday evening, shortly after the two senators published a joint statement against his recent directive to ban the people of seven Muslim majority countries from entering America.

When Stephanopoulos asked Conway why the order, which repeatedly cites the 9/11 terror attacks, covers none of the three countries where the 9/11 attackers were from - Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates - she said Trump's executive action follows the Obama administration's lead.

Wait, is Donald Trump actually going to build that wall?
