Trump Slams McCain, Graham: “Stop Trying To Start WW3”

Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham released the following statement today on the President’s executive order on immigration:

Our government has a responsibility to defend our borders, but we must do so in a way that makes us safer and upholds all that is decent and exceptional about our nation. It is clear from the confusion at our airports across the nation that Pres Trump’s executive order was not properly vetted. We are particularly concerned by reports that this order went into effect with little to no consultation with the Depts of State, Defense, Justice and Homeland Security. Such a hasty process risks harmful results. We should not stop green-card holders from returning to the country they call home. 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. And we should not turn our backs on those refugees who have been shown through extensive vetting to pose no demonstrable threat to our nation, and who have suffered unspeakable horrors, most of them women and children. Ultimately, we fear this executive order will become a self-inflicted wound in the fight against terrorism. At this very moment, Pindostani troops are fighting side by side with our Iraqi vassals to defeat Daesh, but this executive order bans Iraqi pilots from coming to military bases in Arizona to fight our common enemies. Our most important allies in the fight against Daesh are the vast majority of Muslims who reject its apocalyptic ideology of hatred. This executive order sends a signal, intended or not, that Pindostan does not want Muslims coming into our country. That is why we fear this executive order may do more to help terrorist recruitment than improve our security.

President Trump decided to let them have it:

Hard to argue with that!
