In the days since the recent Islamic terrorist attack on the London Bridge, Donald Trump has come under fire for using the opportunity to promote his controversial travel ban. After tweeting about the issue once again, the president faced instant backlash.

Trump's travel ban

When Donald Trump announced his plan to run for president back in June 2015, one of the first issues that he focused on was immigration. While the former host of "The Apprentice" initially focused on illegal immigration from Mexico, his message quickly expanded to include dealing with Islamic terrorism spreading into the West.

As part of his plan to prevent religious extremism in the Middle East from becoming prevalent in the United States, Trump proposed a ban on Muslim immigration, while also calling on the mass deportation of at least 11 million illegal immigrants in the country. As expected, Trump's policy proposals caused controversy and a partisan divide in response. Liberals and Democrats took a hard-line approach in opposition to Trump, with many referring to him as a "racist," "bigot," Islamophobe," and other terms. On the flip side, conservatives and supporters of the president cheered his agenda, praising the billionaire real estate mogul for refusing to be politically correct. After sending out several tweets on the matter in the last 72 hours, Trump returned to Twitter on June 5 to elaborate further.

Taking to his Twitter account on Monday night was Donald Trump and the commander in chief didn't hold back his feelings on the issue at hand.

"That's right, we need a TRAVEL BAN for certain DANGEROUS countries, not some politically correct term that won't help us protect our people!" Trump tweeted. The latest tweet comes after an earlier social media messages where Trump also called for his travel ban to be put into place, while taking time to attack the mayor of London for how he has handled the aftermath of the incident.

Twitter reacts

Responding to Donald Trump's tweet regarding his push for a travel ban and opposition to political correctness, social media users ripped into the president. "Trump has no chill. Back for his 2nd serving of all-caps TRAVEL BAN like it was two scoops of ice cream," director Adam Best wrote on his Twitter account, before adding, "Russia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia… Trump is pretty friendly with some DANGEROUS countries."

"Oh, dear God, please SHUT UP," songwriter Holly O'Reilly tweeted out.

"Sure, this MUSLIM BAN only covers 9 countries, but how long until you say "Islam is a dangerous ideology not restricted to a few countries?" Jules Suzdaltsev also added.

"The problem is, it might stop you from winning your court case," Nick Pappas added. The negative reactions continued to pour in as the backlash to the president and his agenda was put on display for all to see.
