There has been a lot of backlash against Donald Trump's new immigration ban and it's not all coming from the left. In fact, two different Republican senators both fought against Trump's new ban but Trump didn't take this sitting down.

Trump came after Sen. John McCain and Lindsey Graham after they pushed back against Donald Trump's new executive order that prevents citizens immigrating from 7 mostly Muslim countries into the United States.

Trump then rebutted against the senators by telling them to get their priorities in order.

"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," read a statement by both Graham and McCain in response to the executive order.

The two argued that the order had not been "properly vetted" before being signed into action. They also stated that the Departments of State, Defense, Homeland Security and Justice had not been properly informed before the order was signed.

"Such a hasty process risks harmful results," read the statement. "Ultimately, we fear this executive order will become a self-inflicted wound in the fight against terrorism . . . This executive order sends a signal, intended or not, that America does not want Muslims coming into our country. We fear this executive order may do more to help terrorist recruitment than improve our security."

Trump took to Twitter to call out the two senators.

The order prevents citizens from Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Sudan, and Somalia, all countries with heavy terroristic activities, from coming into the U.S. for 90 days. It also includes a 120 day suspension of the refugee program. More importantly, however, is the ban on Syrian refugees from coming into the country "until further notice," and until Syrian immigration is "consistent with the national interest."

Trump is remaining strong defending the ban despite any push-back that he is receiving from the left and even some Republicans.
