I kinda wondered that too.
I've heard that it's because they are states that can be bargained with and that trump plans on them taking in refugees in the near future.
The ladder seems to be happening now, as Saudi Arabia has agreed to take on muslims.

I wasn't defending Islam. Just because I wasn't directly criticizing it doesn't mean I was defending it.
I saw the article a long time ago, and cannot be bothered to find it now.

I'll give you that the majority of the people from those countries are Muslims, but that's not why they were put on the list. The list which came from the Obama administration targets terrorist hotbeds. It's a country ban, much like how Obama put a ban on Iraq for 6 months a few years ago.
