The addition of non-Muslim majority countries, namely North Korea and Venezuela, to the ban does not negate its inherent anti-Muslim intent. It also affirms the white supremacist, exclusionary policies of the Trump administration that discriminate on the basis of faith, national origin, and immigration status.

Muslim Ban 3.0: Analysis, Information, Action
