Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced on Monday that Democrats were hoping to delay votes on President Donald Trump's Cabinet picks in protest of his Friday executive order barring people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US.
"I noticed Chuck Schumer yesterday with fake tears", the President said in front of reporters and White House staff, not even having the respect to identify the Majority Leader by his title.
The order banned USA entry to individuals from seven predominantly-Muslim nations, and it prompted anti-Trump, pro-Muslim refugee protests around the country.
Democratic senator Chuck Schumer earlier teared up on camera as he seethed over the "mean-spirited and un-American" immigration ban.
If you want to join the resistance efforts, a good place to start is calling your representatives and encouraging them to fight the ban. I am glad you're here.
An aide to Schumer says the legislation could come as soon as Monday.
Mr Trump's order suspends the arrival of all refugees for a minimum of 120 days, Syrian refugees indefinitely and bars citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days. The president, he wrote, "is right to make sure we are doing everything possible to know exactly who is entering our country".

However, the major action took part in the second half with Jordan Ayew scoring the opening goal for Ghana in the 63 minute. Ghana , seeking a first Cup of Nations title since 1982, will play Cameroon next Thursday in Franceville for a final place.
Democrats were almost united in their condemnation of Trump's policy, with several of them rushing to airports to speak out in defense of people who had been detained and even those representing states Trump won voicing dissent.
The bill that Murphy will introduce today would withhold any funding that would be used to enforce Trump's executive order, according to a description of the measure circulated by Senate aides.
He said Senate Democrats will move quickly to introduce legislation to reverse the order.
Cleveland Hopkins, which does not have any direct flights to the countries included in Trump's executive order, was the site of a 450-person protest Sunday. Cuomo, a Democrat, said he had directed state lawyers and the agency that controls Kennedy to "explore all legal options" to assist anyone detained at NY airports.
The outage occurred two days after thousands of people began packing into numerous country's major airports, protesting Trump's executive order.
"The orders make us less humanitarian, less safe, less American", Schumer told the crowd of roughly 30,000.
