It IS somewhat odd that as a general rule, the countries who are actually most involved in international terrorism and assassinations are NOT on the list, while those ON the list generally have little involvement in such things. This has been roughly how the whole "war on terror" has operated ever since 9/11, actually, mainly because most of the key terrorism backers (like Saudi Arabia or Qatar) are our best buds, while those Muslim countries and groups NOT generally involved in international terrorism (eg Iran) are often either our enemies or just politically irrelevant and so expendable. So in the name of fighting terrorism we stroke terrorists and mess with the innocent.
Trump isn't really a departure here, just an intensification.
