Donald Trump said that an Alabama woman who ran away from the United States to become a propagandist for Daesh will be barred from returning to the country despite her plea.

“I have instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he fully agrees, not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the country!” Trump tweeted.

Trump’s comment came hours after Mike Pompeo insisted that Muthana did not have US citizenship. “She does not have any legal basis, no valid US passport, no right to a passport, nor any visa to travel to the United States,” reads the statement.

Hoda Muthana, now 24, traveled to Syria in 2014 to join Daesh*, the infamous terrorist group outlawed by the United Nations, Russia, the US and a spate of other countries. She reportedly married at least two doomed militants and had a child with one of them.

Muthana is said to have spread the group’s propaganda via her now-suspended Twitter account, including ta calls to kill Americans.

She was eventually captured by Kurdish fighters and placed in a detention camp with her 18-month-old son. Now, she says she “deeply regrets” supporting the terrorists and inciting hatred on social media.

Trump’s move to reject her plea for return was welcomed by many social media users.

It comes as the UK, in a similar case, is revoking the citizenship of a 19-year-old girl who fled the country in 2015 to marry a Daesh fighter in Syria. She maintained that she had “no regrets” about supporting Daesh and that she was “okay with” the brutal executions carried out by jihadists, but didn’t do anything wrong herself.

The Daesh bride — a dual UK-Bangladesh national — called Britain’s decision “unjust”, while her family are “considering all legal avenues to challenge” it.

Bhai : it’s more complex than this, Yankees didn’t created ISIS at all. It’s an al-Qaeda offshoot created by Iran with Iraqi Saddamists in the goal to have the Yankees demolishing them then having IRGC filling the vacuum… US are implied in other stuff, they’re not ‘clean’, but also have been seriously deceived by some of their regional partners and actually, these partners did a “pay to play” through bribes and huge checks to the Clinton-Foundation. From here, you had crooked politicians in the Obama admin. who used loopholes and illegal abuse of power to have the CIA implied… Congress… Read more »

“She does not have any legal basis, no valid US passport, no right to a passport, nor any visa to travel to the United States,” Mr Pompeo said.
“The United States announced it would refuse to take back the US-born woman, saying that she is no longer a citizen.”

And her lawyer says the opposite. Because she is US born.

Didn’t the US demand European nations take back their head chopping Salafists?

Yup…
Nevertheless, I don’t consider these creeps “ours”. These roaches are against us and pray for our death 5x a day… Moreover, even their “books” say that they shall not live in the middle of the infidels, in other terms, in the middle of us.
Hopefully we just droned the infamous Fabien Clain AKA ‘Abu Adam Al-Faransi’, this one will never return and since his brother was seriously wounded by the Hellfire missile, with a little luck, some infection will finish the job.
Kurds sux : just recycle the roaches as fertilizer and organs transplants…
