Awkward exchanges as Trump meets religious persecution survivors

They Gave You Nobel For What? Trump Asks Yazidi Activist Nadia Murad

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. That's incredible. They gave it to you for what reason?' When asked by a Rohingya refugee about the plan to help his people, Trump replied: 'Where is that exactly?' However, the US President seems to be less responsive when Murad asked him to press the Iraqi and Kurdish governments to create safe conditions for the Yazidis to return. Trump said, "But ISIS is gone and now it's Kurdish and who?" later telling her, "I know the area very well".

Murad, one of thousands of Yazidi females abducted and taken as sex slaves by Daesh during their campaign of expansion from 2014 to 2018 and who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize a year ago, was part of a group of survivors of religious persecution who met Trump in the Oval Office on the sidelines of an important meeting with the State Department. "I make it clear to everyone that ISIS raped thousands of Yazidi women", she said, referring to the Islamic State group.

AB InBev agrees to sell Australian business to pay down debt
AB InBev's net debt totaled $102.5 billion at the end of 2018 and its net debt to core profit ratio was at 4.6 times. The deal gives Asahi a major foothold in Australia, furthering its strategy to build a global presence.

Murad took a pause, and repeated her story. She escaped after three months, and has spent her time since helping women and children who are victims of abuse and human trafficking.

"My people can not go back", she told the president in an impassioned plea. The group was led by Nobel laureate Nadia Murad, who along with Denis Mukwege was jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2018, for "their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict". "After 2014, 95,000 Yazidis emigrated to Germany, not because we want to be refugees, but because we can not find a safe place to live". She pleaded with the president to "please do something".
