My comments : So far there is no ban against travellers from Malaysia visiting the US. The report above has since disappeared from the Malay Mail Online.
If it happened it could be unrelated to the travel ban by the US.
However there is no guarantee that the travel ban may not be expanded to other countries. Lets wait and see.
If Malaysia is added to this list, I will not be surprised. All sorts of terrorists and terrorist mentors have been discovered operating in Malaysia.
You shall reap what you sow.
