The president says he does not want to watch IS fighters ‘permeate Europe’ if the US is forced to release them.
Donald Trump has called on Britain and other European allies to take back more than 800 Islamic State fighters captured in Syria and put them on trial.
The US president said “the alternative is not a good one in that we will be forced to release them”, with the terror group’s caliphate in Iraq and Syria “ready to fall”.
He tweeted: “The US does not want to watch as these ISIS fighters permeate Europe, which is where they are expected to go.

“We do so much, and spend so much – Time for others to step up and do the job that they are so capable of doing.
“We are pulling back after 100% caliphate victory!”

Mr Trump’s comments come after US vice president Mike Pence said the last mile of IS-controlled territory in Syria was being captured by American-backed forces.

His remarks also follow the case of British teenager Shamima Begum, who wants to return to the UK after running away to Syria to join IS as a schoolgirl.
