Donald Trump has threatened to drop jihadist hunters on the British border & # 39; if Britain does not take back its captured ISIS terrorists.
The president yesterday called his European allies a & # 39; huge disappointment & # 39; in a furious attack, just after he announced the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Trump demanded that Britain, France and Germany deal with their ISIS hunters at home, and warned that the US would not pay for hundreds of jihadists who & # 39; over the next 50 years & # 39; held in Guantanamo Bay.
Europe was reluctant to admit the hunters again, but Trump warned that he would drop them & # 39; directly at your border & # 39; if they are not sent back to justice.
Warning: Donald Trump yesterday in the White House where he threatened to & # 39; drop & # 39; jihadist hunters on the British border if Britain would not take back its captured ISIS terrorists
& # 39; The European countries have been a huge disappointment because I have called personally, but my people have called a lot, & # 39; said Trump in the White House.
& # 39; Take your ISIS hunters with you. And they didn't want them. They said: & # 39; we don't want them & # 39 ;.
& # 39; They were from France, they were from Germany, they were from the UK. They came from many countries.
& # 39; And I actually said to them: if you don't take them with you, I'll drop them right at your limit. And you can capture them again. & # 39;
He went on to say: & # 39; The United States taxpayer will not pay for the next 50 years. You see what Guantanamo costs.
& # 39; We are not going to pay tens of billions of dollars because we were good enough to catch people who want to return to Germany, France, the UK and other parts of Europe.
& # 39; And they can walk back. They cannot walk to our country. We have a lot of water between our country and them. & # 39;
The president also defended his own controversial travel ban for a number of Muslim-majority countries and called it & # 39; very effective & # 39 ;.
The fate of captured ISIS hunters has been very controversial in Europe since the supposed & # 39; caliphate & # 39; of the terror group collapsed earlier this year.
Detention camps in Syria are believed to contain more than 10,000 militants, including around 2,000 foreign hunters.
In addition, tens of thousands of ISIS-linked women and children are being held in the al-Hol camp in northeastern Syria.
The fear of an outbreak has increased since the invasion of Turkey in northern Syria has caused chaos in the region.
Some ISIS supporters themselves pleaded their former home countries to have them tried at home.
In the most controversial case in Britain, ISIS bride pleaded with Shamima Teen to return to the UK after giving birth in a prison camp.
But the British government refused to let her come back and the then Foreign Minister Sajid Javid stripped her of her British citizenship.
Security experts have warned that it may be difficult to prove criminal charges against hundreds of hunters, meaning that dozens or even hundreds of ISIS supporters roam freely in Europe.
The al-Hol camp (pictured earlier this year) houses tens of thousands of displaced persons, including relatives of ISIS hunters and the fear of security has increased
"German citizens have the right to return, but we currently have few options in Syria to check whether German citizens are actually affected," said Berlin Foreign Minister Heiko Maas earlier this year.
Maas said that authorities should check to what extent they were involved in the fight for IS, leading to criminal proceedings against them.
& # 39; These people can only come to Germany if it is guaranteed that they can be immediately detained & he said.
The European Union set up a common counter-terrorism register last month in the hope of making convictions easier.
The new tool could also help prevent new attacks in Europe, as prosecutors have access to more information about suspects, officials hope.
It is believed that French jihadists are the largest contingent of European ISIS recruits.
An ISIS cell of French and Belgian hunters previously crossed Syria to Turkey and launched deadly attacks on Paris and Brussels in 2015 and 2016.
Trump made his remarks yesterday after announcing the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a raid on special US forces in Syria.
The Americans spent two hours in the compound and & # 39; took very sensitive material and information from the robbery, much to do with the origins of ISIS, plans for the future, things we really want & # 39 ;, Trump announced.
US intelligence workers will now start searching the plethora of information for evidence of planned attacks around the world.
In addition, American troops took DNA samples linked to an Iraqi prison where Baghdadi was detained in 2004 to confirm his identity.
