A xenophobe is one who is fearful of what is foreign especially people of foreign origin. Trump does business all over the world, so I doubt he fears foreign places or people.
What he is concerned about is Isis terrorists infiltrating as refugees into our country from Syria as they have done in Europe. He has called for a halt to Syrian immigration until these people can be vetted properly.
