Maine Gov. Paul LePage, an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump, said the state's Attorney General Janet Mills "speaks for herself" in opposing the president's ban of immigrants from seven Muslim-heavy countries.

In his first public statement in support of the ban, which has been halted by a federal judge's order, LePage tweeted:

Mills added her name to a legal brief Monday with 15 other Democratic attorneys general urging a federal appeals court to uphold the stay against Trump's executive order.

But The Bangor Daily News noted, per state law, "the attorney general — and not the governor — speaks for the state on legal issues."
