Trump deflects as backlash mounts over travel ban

A defiant President Donald Trump lashed out at protesters, lawmakers and even Delta Airlines Monday as he struggled to defuse a mounting backlash over a controversial US ban on immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries.

After a weekend of chaos at airports, mass protests in major American cities and a diplomatic outcry, the embattled Republican leader went on the offensive over the temporary measure.
"We actually had a very good day yesterday in terms of homeland security," Trump insisted as he met with small business leaders.
In remarks at the White House and on Twitter, Trump hammered Congress for not confirming his cabinet nominees and accused Capitol Hill's top Democrat of shedding "fake tears" over immigrants detained at US airports.
Trump variously tried to play down the impact of the order he signed Friday and defended the White House's decision not to give advance warning to border guards, diplomats and travelers
