The biggest news story over the weekend was involving President Donald Trump and his executive order to ban Muslim refugees from entering the United States from select countries in the Middle East. After Sen. John McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham repudiated Trump's order, the president quickly lashed out on Twitter.

On Friday, Donald Trump put pen to paper in the Oval Office and signed the aforementioned executive order restricting immigration from seven Middle Eastern countries. In response, backlash quickly followed, with various protests taking place around the country in various airports where Muslims were being detained by authorities.

Two Republicans who have been critical of Trump at times are John McCain and Lindsey Graham, who released a joint statement where they agreed the executive order in question will become a "self-inflicted wound" that will only help recruit for Islamic terrorist groups. As seen on his Twitter account on January 29. Trump is not happy.

As expected, Donald Trump was not pleased with the remarks made by the two senators, and voiced his frustration on social media.

"The joint statement of former presidential candidates John McCain & Lindsey Graham is wrong - they are sadly weak on immigration," Trump wrote on his Twitter account on Sunday afternoon. "The two Senators should focus their energies on ISIS, illegal immigration and border security instead of always looking to start World War III," he continued in a follow-up tweet.

In the statement that caused Trump's anger, it reads in part, "We are particularly concerned by reports that this order went into effect with little to no consultation with the Departments of State, Defense, Justice, and Homeland Security." The senators blasted the White House for "such a hasty process" in rushing their executive order, stating that it "risks harmful results."

Moving forward

On Saturday night, a federal judge ordered a temporary stay in regards to the "Muslim ban," after two of the men who were detained at Kennedy International Airport contacted the ACLU and filed a lawsuit. As press time, protests are continuing to take place, though the Donald Trump administration doesn't appear to be backing down.
