Trump’s Executive Order: Effective counterterrorism measure?

This video is linked to the massive open online course (MOOC) Terrorism and Counterterrorism: Comparing Theory & Practice that is offered by Leiden University on the platform Coursera. 

Every month, Professor Edwin Bakker reflects on the latest developments in the field of terrorism and counterterrorism. The news in the month of January was clearly dominated by one person: US President Donald Trump. On January 27, he signed an executive order "Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the US". What can we say about this so-called counterterrorism policy? The report of the CATO Institute mentioned in the video can be found here

Other topics that are discussed in the video are the fight against Boko Haram in Nigeria, the position of IS in Syria and Iraq, and the attack in Quebec, Canada.
