US President Donald Trump threatened to “drop” captured Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL’ group] terrorists on the UK border if the government does not start repatriating them from Syrian camps.

Speaking at a press conference where he announced the death of Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Trump called European nations a “tremendous disappointment”.

Trump said he had personally pressured EU countries to take back Daesh members.

“They came from France, they came from Germany, they came from the UK. They came from a lot of countries,” he added.

“And I actually said to them, if you don’t take them, I’m going to drop them right on your border and you can have fun capturing them again.”

Trump suggested that if detainees escape Kurdish-controlled camps, the US will not “capture people that want to go back to Germany, France, UK and other parts of Europe”.

“They could walk back – they can’t walk to our country. We have lots of water in between our country and them,” he added.

The US President has made similar threats several times in the past, saying earlier this month that he was unconcerned over the potential escape of Isis fighters because “they’re going to be escaping to Europe”.

In August, Trump claimed he would “release [thousands of Daesh terrorists] to Europe” if they were not repatriated, but the threat has never materialized.
