Trump has threatened to “drop” captured Isis fighters on the UK border if the government does not start repatriating them from Syrian camps. Speaking at a press conference where he announced the death of Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the US president called European nations a “tremendous disappointment”.

After thanking Russia, Turkey, Syria and Iraq for assistance in the operation, Mr Trump said he had personally pressured EU countries to take back Isis members. “They came from France, they came from Germany, they came from the UK. They came from a lot of countries,” he added.
