WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — King noted that the goal of Daesh terrorist group is to drive a wedge between peaceful Muslims and the West, which is what Trump's executive order is effectively accomplishing.
"This is probably the worst foreign policy decision since the invasion of Iraq," King told CNN's New Day. "What it's done is played right into ISIS's [Daesh's] hands."
Trump signed an executive order on Friday blocking all refugees from coming to the United States for 120 days and suspending entry for nationals of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya and Somalia for 90 days.
The order, aiming to boost the country's security, has sparked controversy around the world and led to multiple protests in the United States.
