Hoda Muthana, who left the U.S. as a teen to join the terrorists of ISIS, is having some problems accepting the consequences of her actions.
Seeking to return to the U.S., Hoda has been denied. But now the she wants to speak out directly against President Trump.
While being interviewed by Charlie D’Agata on CBS News’ “Face the Nation,” Muthana stated what she would tell the sitting president.
“I would tell [President Trump] to study the legal system. Because apparently I am allowed back. I have papers. I have citizenship. I have my dad’s documents. It’s apparent that he stopped working with the United Nations way before I was born.”
Hoda’s citizenship has been called into question as her father was a foreign diplomat. As such she would not be entitled to birthright citizenship.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo even addressed the situation saying she is “a noncitizen terrorist” and that “she’s not coming back.”
“She has no legal basis for her claim of U.S. citizenship. She’s not coming back to the United States to create the risk that, someday, she’ll return to the battlefield and continue to put at risk American people, American kids, American boys and girls that were sent to go defeat ISIS. She put them at risk. She’s not a U.S. citizen and she’s not coming back,” Pompeo said.
It seems the issue will be debated until U.S. judges make a decision on the matter.
