Trump Tells European Countries To Come Pick Up Their Terrorists.
We have been imprisoning ISIS members that are not originally from the Middle East. They are European citizens that have become terrorists. Now Trump is telling Europeans countries to come get their violent criminals as we should not be forced to pay for their continued care as prisoners. He even threatened to release them in their home countries to get their attention.
“I defeated the caliphate. When I came, the caliphate was all over the place. I defeated the caliphate, ISIS, and now we have thousands of prisoners of war, ISIS fighters that are prisoners of war, and we’re asking the countries from which they came … from Europe, We’re asking them to take back these prisoners of war,” the president told reporters alongside Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison at the White House.”
“So far, they’ve refused. And at some point, I’m going to have to say, “I’m sorry, but you either take them back, or we’re going to let them go at your border.” But they came out from Germany, they came out from France. We captured them. We did everyone a big favor. We’ve taken over the caliphate 100 percent.
“…if they don’t take them back, we’re going to probably going to put them at the border and then they’ll have to capture them again.”
“Because the United States is not going to have thousands and thousands of people that we have captured stationed at Guantanamo Bay, held captive at Guantanamo Bay, for the next 50 years, and us spending billions and billions of dollars. We’ve done Europe a tremendous favor…”
Libs, of course, focused in on the part where he said he was going to release them. They fail to realize that this is just a threat as Trump is trying to save taxpayers money and needs these countries to know that he is serious. European countries should have to pay for the imprisonment of their own people, why is this even controversial?
