"The joint statement of former presidential candidates John McCain & Lindsey Graham is wrong - they are sadly weak on immigration," Donald Trump tweeted.

"The two senators should focus their energies on ISIS, illegal immigration and border security instead of always looking to start World War III," wrote the U.S. president.
