Many world leaders have criticised the White House, with many branding the move “unconstitutional”.
Federica Mogherini has issued her own statement condemning Mr Trump, with the 43-year-old Italian pledging continued EU support for Syrian refugees.
She said: “This is not the European Way. The EU will continue to take care and host Syrian refugees and others who are fleeing from war.”
The EU’s chief foreign affairs spokesman has criticised Donald Trump
“Every single day a Syrian child is out of school exposes them to a future which is not a future of commitment and engagement,” Ms Mogherini.
In a clear message to President Trump, who has made little secret of his disdain for the EU, Ms Mogherini warned against those who wish to build walls rather than bridges.
She said: “In Europe we have a history that has told that every time one invests in divisions and walls you might end up being in a prison if you build all walls around you.
“We have a history and a tradition that we celebrate when walls are brought down and bridges are built.”,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
