Not sure if that's the truth but there may be a whole lot of overreaction going on...
Following a botched terrorist attack by Iraqis, Obama decided to review the files of 50,000+ Iraqi refugees, and increased vetting for about six months. As a result, immigration from Iraq slowed (but no one was outright banned).

Trump, however, banned everyone from 7 countries from entering the US, even those who have already been vetted and were planning to come here anyways.
