He added, "I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the President of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and Constitutional power".

"Why not just call it the state of Hawaii?"

"Hawaii is, in fact, an island in the Pacific - a attractive one where the Attorney General's granddaughter was born", Prior said. "Please use the google".

On Friday, Sessions said that he did not mean to criticize the state and was merely "raising the point of that issue of a single judge taking such a dramatic action and the impact that it could have", he told CNN.
