Iraq War Vet Congressman: Americans See That Trump's Order Is Really 'a Muslim Ban'

On "This Week," Congressman Moulton called Trump's executive order un-American.

"What he's doing with this Muslim ban just is so wrong and un-American, you see why so many Americans across the country are rising up against it," the Democratic representative told ABC News' Martha Raddatz on "This Week."

When Raddatz noted, "They will tell you again and again, it is not a Muslim ban," Moulton replied, "There's no question what's going on here. We're not stupid. We see what Trump is up to."

On Saturday, Moulton tweeted to President Trump: "Your #MuslimBan is completely at odds with our most fundamental value: freedom. I'm ashamed that you are our president."

"There is no way in hell that he is supportive of this," the congressman said of Mattis. "He relied on translators for his life, just like I did. He understands what it means to put your life in the hands of an Iraqi or an Afghan. And he also knows that implicit in that is that they put their lives in our hands, as well, and now we're abandoning them."

Mattis along with Vice President Mike Pence stood at Trump's side when the president signed the order Friday.

The Democratic Massachusetts representative predicted the executive order will be used by terror groups as a recruiting tool and that it won't make the U.S. safer.
