U.S. President Donald Trump's effort to bar citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries has provided, up until now, the main barometer of how his administration is viewed in the Islamic world.After eight years of being told what to do by the White House, Trump is seen as a welcome – if potentially unsettling – change of pace.Here, too, Trump represents an attractive alternative for these countries' leaders.Just days before ordering the attack on Syria, Trump received Sisi warmly at the White House, praising him for doing a "fantastic job".Trump's now-frozen travel ban has been similarly polarizing.However, Trump's embrace of some Arab leaders, while leaving others alone, suits most Middle East governments quite well.
