The UAE has asked citizens not to wear traditional clothes overseas. A UAE businessman was mistaken for an ISIS member. He was making a phone call in a hotel in the USA. The receptionist called the police because of his white clothes, and because he spoke Arabic. The man went to hospital after police pushed him.

The police and the hotel apologised to the man. He blamed Donald Trump for making people hate Muslims. An American Islamic group asked why the police thought the man's clothes were a criminal sign. The man said: "I always wear my traditional clothes during all my travels and never [experienced] such a thing".
