Republican lawmakers need to back President Donald Trump's decisions, his counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday as she defended the commander in chief's criticism of Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham for criticizing his executive order on immigrants.

"We want them to be there for the president and support him," Conway said on ABC News' "Good Morning America.”

And she insisted that Trump's order banning to refugees and immigrants from some Muslim countries from entering the United States "is temporary. It is narrowly prescribed."

On Sunday, fellow Republicans McCain and Graham from Arizona and South Carolina issued a joint statement criticizing the 90-day ban which stops nationals from seven mostly Muslim countries entering the U.S., as well as a 120-day stop prohibition on refugees.

Trump's order, they said, "sends a signal, intended or not, that America 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."

That prompted Trump to fire back on Twitter:

 

Conway also praised Trump's accomplishments in his first week in the White House.

"I mean, Donald Trump has been on the job for, what, eight, nine, ten days. Barack Obama was here for eight years. The extraordinary accomplishments in just the first week truly are breathtaking," she told GMA anchor George Stephanopoulos.
