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".
Conway was responding to questions from ABC News' chief anchor George Stephanopoulos about Trump's response on Twitter on Sunday after Sens.
- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 29, 2017.Senators should focus their energies on ISIS, illegal immigration and border security instead of always looking to start World War III. On Saturday, the president responded angrily to their recent criticism, accusing them on Twitter of "always looking to start world war III", an apparent reference to the other issue on which McCain and Graham are highly critical of Trump - his ties to Russian Federation.
"We all share a desire to protect the American people, but this executive order has been poorly implemented, especially with respect to green card holders", said Corker.
The Republican hawks joined the loud chorus of largely left-wing condemnation of the executive order, commonly known as the "Muslim ban" by critics.
Trump on Friday signed an executive order calling for a 90-day ban on nationals from seven predominantly Muslim countries entering the United States. "We fear this executive order may do more to help terrorist recruitment than improve our security".
The order already has been blocked by four federal judges.
John McCain expressed his concerns about the president's executive order to ban refugees from seven Middle East countries. "To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting", the statement said. "This is not about religion - this is about terror and keeping our country safe", the White House statement said.
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.
McCain said he talked with former Central Intelligence Agency director David Petraeus, who expressed concern about interpreters who have helped the USA military and are "literally in danger as we speak".
McCaul said in a statement that Trump had already done "more to shut down terrorist pathways into this country than the last administration did in eight years".
