Ibtihaj Muhammad claimed in an interview Tuesday that she was detained

- Barack Obama was still president in December 2016, meaning Muhammad was detained under America’s 44th commander in chief.

- Trump was sworn into office on Jan. 20.

- The executive order on immigration was signed into law on Jan. 27.

To put it plainly, reports suggesting, and alleging, that the executive order had ensnared an American champion are totally false.

Reporters have done it again.

The latest media misfire on the Trump administration involves Ibtihaj Muhammad, a New Jersey native who made headlines last year when she became the first female Muslim-American to win an Olympic medal for the United States.

Muhammad, a lifelong American citizen, claimed in an interview last week that she was detained “just a few weeks ago” by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents. She said she was held for two hours without explanation.
