Trump Threatens To Release ISIS Prisoners Into Europe If They Don’t Take Them Back


President Trump is playing hard ball with Europe over the union’s refusal to take back ISIS fighters America captured, primarily in France and Germany.

On Wednesday, our president gave Europe the ultimatum: take ISIS prisoners back or else we will release them into your countries!

President Trump spoke,

“We beat them. We captured them. We’ve got thousands of them. And now, as usual, our allies say,

‘Oh no. We don’t want them.’ 

Even though they came from France and Germany and other places. So we’re going to tell them and we’ve already told them, 

‘Take these prisoners that we’ve captured because the United States is not going to put them in Guantanamo for the next 50 years and pay for it!'”

The Daily Mail has more on President Trump's call for Europe to take back their ISIS prisoners:

Donald Trump says he'll air drop ISIS fighters into Europe, with no restrictions on the radicals' movements, if the countries they were living in before they were caught on the battlefield refuse to take them into custody. 

He told journalists before he left the White House on Wednesday afternoon: 'If Europe doesn't take them, then I have no choice but to release them into the countries from which they came, which is Germany, and France, and other places.'

The subject is likely to come up when he meets with European leaders this weekend in France. They're holding their annual gathering in the seaside resort town of Biarritz.  

He revived the claim a second time several hours later in a speech to veterans at a Kentucky conference, asking attendees if they agreed that jihadis caught in Iraq and Syria should be returned.

'Certain countries in Europe, they've got to take them back. Because we don't want to hold them,' he stated. 'They'd rather have us hold them, and let us have them for 50 years. We don't want them. They should take them. Do we agree? They should take them?'

His statement was met with applause, and Trump continued to riff about about American allies refusing to take custody of the ISIS fighters.

'They say to us, why don't you hold them in Guantanamo Bay for 50 years and you just hold them and spend billions and billions of dollars holding them. And I'm saying, no you gotta take them,' he asserted. 

The president has become increasingly anxious about the fighters as he turns his attention to the Group of Seven summit. He's spoken about the jihadis on three occasions publicly in the past week, each time suggesting he's growing more impatient with Europe's stance on the terrorists.

He told journalists at the White House on Wednesday, 'We're holding thousands of ISIS fighters right now, and Europe has to take them.'

'We beat them. We captured them. We've got thousands of them. And now, as usual, our allies say, "Oh no. We don’t want them." Even though they came from France and Germany and other places,' he insisted. 'So we're going to tell them and we've already told them, "Take these prisoners that we've captured because the United States is not going to put them in Guantanamo for the next 50 years and pay for it." ' 

Trump did not offer a deadline for his threat to dump them in France and Germany. 

He simply said, 'It's moving along, my deadline. They know.' 

The White House and State Department have been pressuring governments in Europe to take back thousands of jihadis and their brides captured when ISIS collapsed – and having no success – for nearly two years, a source with knowledge of the conversations told DailyMail.com last week.

The Daily Wire also said:

On Wednesday, President Trump sent a stern message to European leaders: if the countries from which captured ISIS fighters came don’t take them back, he’ll air drop them into Europe.

As The Daily Mail reported, Trump told reporters, “We’re holding thousands of ISIS fighters right now, and Europe has to take them. We beat them. We captured them. We’ve got thousands of them. And now, as usual, our allies say, ‘Oh. no. We don’t want them.’ Even though they came from France and Germany and other places. We’re going to tell them and we’ve already told them, ‘Take these prisoners that we’ve captured because the United States is not going to put them in Guantanamo for the next 50 years and pay for it.’ If Europe doesn’t take them, then I have no choice but to release them into the countries from which they came, which is Germany, and France, and other places.” He concluded, “It’s moving along, my deadline. They know.”

 

Hours later, the president repeated his assertion before a group of veterans in Kentucky, saying, “Certain countries in Europe, they’ve got to take them back. Because we don’t want to hold them. They’d rather have us hold them, and let us have them for 50 years. We don’t want them. They should take them. Do we agree? They should take them? They say to us, ‘Why don’t you hold them in Guantanamo Bay for 50 years and you just hold them and spend billions and billions of dollars holding them.’ And I’m saying, ‘No, you gotta take them.’”
