President Donald Trump said he doesn't regret signing the immigration executive order meant to keep migrant families together.

"The executive order was great," Trump said in response to a question from CNN's Jeff Zeleny. "It was something that I felt we had to do."

He said a report he was grousing about signing the order was "fake news" and went on to repeat his assertion that US immigration laws are flawed.

"They're a disaster. The laws have to be changed," Trump said. "We want a system where people come in illegally they have to go out. A nice simple system that works."
