Why is Trump coddling the terrorists?

If this order was really about trying to do what is says, you would think it would at least get this part right?
Announcing his “extreme vetting” plan, the president invoked the specter of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Most of the 19 hijackers on the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Shanksville, Pa., were from Saudi Arabia. The rest were from the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Lebanon. None of those countries are on Mr. Trump’s visa ban list.
Not that we should actually countenance the premise, but if we were to humor the notion that we're "safer" for barring entry to people from countries known to have produced terrorists, then why doesn't the rule actually apply to those countries?  Maybe Trump doesn't actually care about fighting terroism.
