Political Junkie Ken Rudin has much to discuss from events over the weekend, including more executive action from President Trump and the reactions that followed.

In response to a ban on travel to the U.S. from seven Muslim-majority, people protested in airports across the country. Federal judges also stepped in to call the order by Trump unconstitutional.

The Iraqi Parliament has passed a reciprocal ban against Americans traveling to Iraq.

Trump also promoted Steve Bannon to have a seat at the National Security Council while demoting the director of National Intelligence and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Reince Preibus will take over as the President's Chief of Staff.

On Twitter, Trump announced that he will announce his Supreme Court nominee Tuesday.
