Australia's leader says Trump isn't chasing a refugee deal
The latest rebuke from the senators comes after Republicans John McCain - a former presidential candidate and critic of Trump - and Senator Bob Corker called Australia's ambassador to Washington Joe Hockey to voice their support for the alliance.
Last week, Trump had a telephone conversation with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, which ended before the allotted time following a heated conversation on a refugee deal between Australia and the US.
So far it remains unclear what will happen with the refugees that were supposed to be brought into the United States from the Pacific islands of Nauru and Manus.
Channel Nine released a snippet which sees Oakes poking fun at "Prime Minister Trunbull", off the back of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's unfortunate gaffe where he mistakenly referred to Turnbull as Trunbull not once, but twice.
Labor MP Anne Aly, the first Muslim woman in the Australian Parliament and a counter-terrorism expert, said the countries targeted by Mr Trump were not the major exporters of foreign fighters and therefore it made little sense as a security measure.
Donald Trump "will do everything in his power" to halt the refugee deal between Australia and the U.S., according to a hardline Texan congressman who is confident no resettlements will ever take place from Manus Island or Nauru.
In the widely reported phone call between Trump and Turnbull, the USA president reportedly accused America's longtime ally of seeking to export "the next Boston bomber", and that "this was was the worst call by far" following a day of phone calls with world leaders - including Russian President Vladimir Putin.

US President Donald Trump speaks on the phone with Malcolm Turnbull on Sunday morning. "I don't think there has ever been more public support for Australia than there has been this week", he said.
"Australians know me very well".
The comments follow similar criticism from the influential chairmen of the House and Senate judiciary committees, who said in November the White House had "left Americans in the dark".
"And so he doesn't really care so much that Australia is an ally over many, many years".
"The thing you have to understand about Donald Trump is that he is not a natural diplomat, he is not a politician", he said in an interview.
The President of the United States also allegedly bragged about the size of his electoral victory.
"We assess all requests for military assistance on their merits", Turnbull replied. He added, "And there is no linkage, no linkage at all between an arrangement relating to a refugee resettlement and any other matters".
