Trump Completely Ignores Refugee Telling Him Her Family Died, Then He Asks: ‘Where Are They Now?’
Donald Trump is an asshole. If you support him or not, you know he is not a very nice person at all and the video below is enough evidence to show that.
During a visit to the White House, Nadia Murad, a Nobel Peace Prize recipient and refugee of the Yazidi region of Iraq, urged the president to help her community.
Murad recounted how although ISIS is gone, the Kurdish and Iraqi governments are fighting for control of the region indigenous to the Yazidi people. She called on Trump to intervene between the two governments.
“Today you can solve our problem. Now there is no ISIS but we cannot go back because Kurdish government and the Iraqi government, they are fighting each other (over) who will control my area,” Murad explained. “And we cannot go back if we cannot protect our dignity, our families.”
Trump interrupted her by saying: “But ISIS is gone.”
She also explained how she and 95,000 other Yazidis became refugees due to the area still being in turmoil despite ISIS being gone.
“They emigrated to Germany through a very dangerous way. Not because we want to be a refugees, but we cannot find a safe place to live,” she said. Her comments come as Trump is trying to limit the number of migrants coming to the United States, mostly from Central America. Many migrants from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras are fleeing economic poverty and gang violence.
Things then got worse when Trump completely ignored Murad when she told him that her mother and six brothers were killed.
“All this happened to me. They killed my mom, my six brothers. They left behind them,” Murad said.
“Where are they now?” Trump then asked.
“They killed them,” Murad quickly replied. “They are in the mass grave in Sinjar, and I’m still fighting just to live in safe. Please do something.”
Take a look at the encounter in the video clip below:
