That Evidence of Trump's Poorly Hidden Anti-Muslim Bias

The list of countries on the limited entry list?  It turns out that they were part of a bill Obama signed.  Snopes of course calls this "mixed" because that Obama-signed bill didn't have travel restrictions, but that's from where Trump's list came.
WHAT'S TRUE: The "seven countries" targeted by President Trump's 27 January 2017 executive order pertaining to immigration were not mentioned by name and instead originated with "countr[ies] or area[s] of concern" first identified in the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015 (expanded to all seven countries "of concern" in February 2016).
