Republican Sen. Johnson calls travel ban 'reasonable'

MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson calls President Donald Trump's travel ban a ``pretty reasonable proposal'' and is asking opponents to read the executive order ``and tell me what you disagree with.''    

Johnson broke his silence on the travel ban affecting seven mostly Muslim countries in a radio interview Tuesday on WISN-AM. He says the order is being ``blown out of proportion'' by opponents.    

He says Trump critics will ``agitate with the smallest provocation.''   

 Johnson is also calling on Democrats to help Republicans quickly confirm Trump's Cabinet appointees. Johnson asks Democrats to ``give us a little hand here so this administration can actually get up and running and I think the roll out of these policies will be smoother.''    

Johnson is chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee.
