President Trump has told the UK and other European allies to take back and put on trial more than 800 Islamic State (IS) group fighters captured in the final battle against the group.
His tweet comes as US-backed Kurdish forces continue an assault on the last pocket of IS territory on the Syrian side of the Iraqi border.
The IS fighters are being held by the Kurdish-led forces.
Mr Trump added that the IS caliphate was “ready to fall.”
“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”, he said in a tweet.
Mr Trump’s remarks echo those made by the UK’s foreign intelligence chief on Friday, who warned that the Islamic State group is reorganising for more attacks despite its military defeat in Syria.
