Other countries must shoulder fight against extremist militant groups, says Trump

Iraq's rapid response forces detain a man as they storm a house in the Tarmiyah district north of Baghdad searching for wanted Islamic State group suspects Islamic State persists despite territory loss: Pompeo

With India and Pakistan already occupied with the tensions in Kashmir, and Russian Federation - which actually did the work of defeating IS (often reinforced by the US-backed "moderate rebels") - most likely uninterested in wading back into a quagmire it exited decades ago, it's unclear who among the countries Trump addressed might take him up on his offer to share the clean-up job in Afghanistan.

President Donald Trump Wednesday appeared to rule out sending the thousands of ISIS foreign fighters now being detained by United States allies in Syria to the detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, saying that the ISIS detainees should be repatriated to their countries of origin.

"India is right there, they are not fighting it, we are fighting it", Trump told reporters, answering a question about United States plans to keep its troops in Afghanistan or withdraw them as regards the ongoing peace talks. "Pakistan is next door".

In early August, Trump stated, "We have thousands of ISIS fighters that we want Europe to take, and let's see if they take them". He made the statement while lamenting that the United States was left to deal with terrorists from almost 7,000 miles away, and other countries were not doing enough, PTI reported.

Asked by journalists if he is concerned about the reemergence of the IS in Iraq, Trump said forces under his lead had wiped out the extremists´ caliphate.

The Trump administration has reduced the U.S. military presence in Syria and Iraq and is negotiating a withdrawal from Afghanistan with the Taliban insurgents.

"At a certain point Russia, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, they are going to have to fight their battles too", Trump told reporters at the White House, while answering questions about America's plans to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan. "We are pulling back after 100% Caliphate victory!"

"All of these other countries where ISIS is around...all of these are going to have to fight", he warned.

Trump Will Drop out of 2020 Election: Former Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci
This is why there's nobody inside the White House he's taking any advice from", Scaramucci said. Trump is already facing a Republican primary challenge by former Massachusetts Gov.

"Other countries must assume the battle against extremists as the United States negotiates a withdrawal from Afghanistan", Trump told reporters. "I don't think so".

Also Wednesday, Trump repeated a threat to "release" ISIS fighters back to their country of origin. NBC News reported at the time, "Experts estimate USA -backed Syrian Democratic Forces hold some 800 European ISIS fighters in makeshift prisons, but the mostly Kurdish militia group is struggling to maintain them more than four months after ISIS lost the last significant part of its so-called caliphate. Which is Germany and France and other places".

"We beat them. We captured them".

IS has also become a potent threat in Afghanistan, where it acts independent of the Taliban, which is now negotiating a peace deal with the United States.

Speaking from the Oval Office alongside Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan in July last month, Trump also warned he could end the conflict in a matter of days through force and "Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth", but preferred dialogue. We've got thousands of them.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo acknowledged on Tuesday that ISIS militants were gaining strength in some areas but said the militant group's capacity to conduct attacks has been greatly diminished.

With additional input from AFP. He gave enthusiastic backing to Imran's government and publicly urged Trump to meet Imran.
