Trump Calls Top Senate Democrat's Emotional Response to Muslim Ban 'Fake Tears'

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) had grown teary-eyed Sunday when he called the executive action "mean-spirited and un-American" at a Manhattan news conference. As for sidelining Dunford, Spicer said, "The president gets plenty of information from the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff".

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Sunday that they had a chance to pass the legislation and overturn Trump's ban if enough Republicans joined them.

Trump's executive order placed a 120-day ban on refugees and a 90-day ban on visitors traveling to the USA from seven Muslim-majority countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. John McCain is exactly right. "The orders make us less humanitarian, less safe, less American", Schumer added.

The White House began a damage control effort on Sunday evening that continued into Monday.

Trump "clearly campaigned on this ban but the fact that he put no thought into how it was drafted or how it would be implemented is incredibly risky", Murphy added.

"In my view, we ought to all take a deep breath and come up with something that makes sense for our national security and again for this notion that America has always been a welcoming home for refugees and immigrants", he said. But it does mean that this sort of thing is worthwhile for Democrats to push whenever possible, since it invites Republicans to cast a vote in keeping with their stated principles or, if not, to reveal that they are not willing to vote in keeping with their stated principles.


Congressional Republicans at first remained notably silent about the order. He did not comment further.

In a way, the massive grassroots energy that appears to have been activated most prominently by Trump's executive order - though it obviously wasn't activated only by that - presents Democrats with both an opportunity and a challenge. It's quite another to say that individuals who are from a particular country, belong to a particular faith or are refugees fleeing conflict are banned from the United States.

'Imagine if they had put all this enthusiasm, these tearful senators these senators with bull horns - imagine if they had protested outside VA hospitals when our veterans were dying for care?' Conway asked. "That's the point. There should not be a religious test".

But confusion persisted over details of implementation, in particular for green card holders who are legal residents of the United States.

Mr Trump claimed only a few people were hit by issues after the ban on Muslims travelling to the U.S. went into place, tweeting to say "all is going well with very few problems".
