Welcome to the land of "alternative facts" and realities.
Loaded? Let's go the CIA World Factbook and check the demographics for the seven countries from which travel and entry to the United States is banned:
Iraq - 99 percent Muslim
Iran - 99.4 percent Muslim
Somalia - 99.8 percent Muslim
Libya - 96.6 percent Muslim
Yemen - 99.1 percent Muslim
Sudan - 97 percent Muslim
Syria - 87 percent Muslim
The ban comes from a president who promised as candidate to ban Muslims from entering the country until US officials could figure out what the hell is going on. His supporters cheered him on wildly.
Now plenty of people in the world are trying to figure out what's going on in the United States. And anyone in a position of power should understand that their emails and directives on these issues will be forwarded to the world at large.
Get a spine, editors.
