Trump Drops ‘Alternative Fact’ On Immigration Debacle: ‘A Massive Success’

Donald Trump is defending his executive order barring refugees and people from seven predominately Muslim countries from entering the U.S, with one official calling it a “massive success story.”

“It really is a massive success story in terms of implementation on every single level,” Trump spokesman told reporters during a briefing late Monday

Trump called for the media to stop its “false, misleading, inaccurate, hyperventilating” coverage of the “fractional, marginal, minuscule percentage” of travelers who were “set aside for further questioning” under the order.

The White House also said the ban was put into place without warning because “everybody here can use their imaginations to imagine 25 reasons that wouldn’t make sense from a security standpoint, a management standpoint, from just an airport-safety standpoint, you name it.”

Trump’s executive order signed Friday bars Syrian refugees indefinitely and halts the U.S. refugee resettlement program for four months. It also denies entry for 90 days to people from seven predominately Muslim countries: Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Libya.

After the order was signed, reports emerged of refugees being detained upon arrival at U.S. airports and new details continued to surface about the exact scope of who would be impacted.

Top aides to the president on Sunday defended the executive order’s implementation amid backlash from some lawmakers and protests that broke out Saturday and Sunday in cities across the country.

The latest blow to Trump’s order came from the Justice Department after the acting Attorney General order DOJ attorneys “not to defend the executive action because it’s not legal.”

Despite all the backlash, Trump continues to call his order “a massive success.”
