Instead of trying to bar Muslims from any countries, I would welcome and try to accommodate as many as we could, after the already in place vetting system, those who are refugees from war torn nations. I would make a point that those people are here to escape those that insist in continued violence and those who seem to thing "conversion" to their form of Islam via killing and violence and threats of death, are here to escape forced religion as much as the violence. I would remind Muslims the greatest threat to them so far, is not foreign invaders (although the invasion of Iraq gave them lots of mileage to blame the West), but IS and ask them if they think there is anything genuine about "believing" if one only "believes" to escape death, not by God's or Allah's hands, but by human hands and humans who think violence will beget them adherence that is lasting and without need for continued oppression to maintain it. At some point the much larger populations of Muslims will tire of the violence and those that are trying to force their fundamentalism on everyone through violence and they will turn very swiftly and decisively on IS.
I have no idea if that is Donald Trump's plan, but he seems to think buying weapons of destruction and spending enormous amount of money on the military (Isn't that what dictators do?) is better than not pissing people off and effectively taunting them to attack us. We have already seen the "successes" what more than a decade fighting a war with conventional warfare and weapons vs. guerrilla warfare, have resulted in and why Trump could use fear mongering as part of what got him elected, even though any American has a much greater chance of being killed by a non-Muslim American than a foreign Muslim member of IS
