President Trump said on Wednesday, in a tweet, that he told Pompeo to prohibit Hoda Muthana from returning.

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

Pompeo added that Muthana would not come back to pose a threat to the country.

“President Trump made clear that she wasn’t coming back. She’s not a U.S. citizen. She is not entitled to U.S. citizenship,” he said.

She now wants to be re-admitted after abandoning the terrorist group and being captured by Kurdish forces. She is currently being held in a refugee camp in northeast Syria with her 18-month-old son from one of her ISIS marriages.
