Donald Trump asks Nadia Murad who escaped Islamic State why she was awarded the Nobel Prize

President Trump had an awkward exchange with Nobel Prize-winning activist Nadia Murad recently by asking her about her family's whereabouts after she told them twice they were killed by the Islamic State.

United States President Donald Trump on Wednesday asked Nobel laureate Nadia Murad in Washington DC why she had received the prize. Her tireless activism to help Yazidis, including through her foundation, Nadia's Initiative, won her the Nobel Peace Prize in 2018; she shared the honor with activist Denis Mukwege of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. "I make it clear to everyone that ISIS raped thousands of Yazidi women", she said, referring to the Islamic State group.

Mr Trump said that he would "look into it very strongly".

Murad paused briefly and after gaining composure explained to the President, "After all this happened to me, I did not give up". "But ISIS is gone and now it's Kurdish and who?"

Thousands of Yazidis were killed and more than 6,000 women and children were taken captive by Isis in the summer of 2014, when the terror group carried out a murderous rampage against the small religious minority in their traditional homeland in northern Iraq. "Please do something. It is not about one family".

"My people can not go back", she told the president in an impassioned plea.

During the meeting, Murad also explained how Yazidis took unsafe routes to find safety in Germany, whose welcome to refugees has been vocally criticized by Trump.

Trump continued to put his foot in his mouth by seemingly not knowing who the Rohingya are, while meeting a representative from the Muslim minority slaughtered in Myanmar two years ago.

The Trump administration frequently speaks of promoting religious freedom, a key issue for much of his evangelical Christian base.
