On Monday (March 6), President Donald Trump rocked the nation again as he signed a revised travel ban that will halt entry into the U.S. for people from six Muslim-majority nations.
It was only a matter of time before celebrities and politicians took to Twitter to express continued frustrations, with #MuslimBan becoming one of the top trending topics on the social-networking site. Here are some of those reactions:
Trump only issued a “new” travel ban because he can’t stand that he lost on the old one. This is about his ego, not about our security.

OK, so “Travel Ban: The Sequel” is basically the same movie as the original, they just wrote out one of the main characters.

Donalf F Trump – you are a petulant liar, a fool, and a disgrace. you should apologize, step down, leave town, and fuck off permanently.

new travel ban is the same white supremacist bullshit as its predecessor and should be resisted with the same vigor imo

Oh look, another travel ban. If the first movie is a massive flop, there usually isn’t a sequel right away. There’s no Waterworld 2.

Let’s call Trump’s travel ban what it is: A racist and anti-Islamic attempt to divide us up.
