Bye, Felicia! That’s what President Donald Trump has to say to jihadi bride Hoda Muthana, who’s begging to return to the United States after abandoning the country in 2015 to join ISIS.

“I have instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he fully agrees, not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the Country!” Trump tweeted.

Mike Pompeo to Hoda Muthana: Girl, Bye!

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a statement saying Muthana has no right to be in the United States, and refused her pleas to return with her 18-month-old son:

“Ms. Hoda Muthana is not a U.S. citizen and will not be admitted into the United States.

She does not have any legal basis, no valid U.S. passport, no right to a passport, nor any visa to travel to the United States. We continue to strongly advise all U.S. citizens not to travel to Syria.”


Muthana, 24, was a naturalized US citizen who was born in Hackensack, New Jersey, to a Yemeni diplomat.

Children born in the United States to foreign diplomats do not automatically become US citizens under the 14th Amendment, according to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Muthana’s Dad Was Yemeni Diplomat

Predictably, Muthana is planning to sue Trump. She claims her father stopped being a diplomat months before she was born in New Jersey, Fox News reported. Muthana’s attorney claims the ISIS bride has a valid US passport.

“The Trump administration continues its attempts to wrongfully strip citizens of their citizenship. Hoda Muthana had a valid US passport and is a citizen.”

However, the United States can revoke a person’s citizenship if they join a terrorist organization and take up arms against the country.

Muthana — who lived in Alabama before running away to Syria to join ISIS — is currently living in a refugee camp in Syria. She told the liberal UK newspaper the Guardian that she regrets having joined ISIS and wants to return to the US.

“I would tell them please forgive me for being so ignorant,” Muthana said. “I was really young and ignorant and I was 19 when I decided to leave.”

Remember the last time the US let an ISIS bride back into the country? Tashfeen Malik and her jihadi husband Syed Farook killed 14 people in San Bernardino, California, in 2015.

Muthana Urged Violence Against Americans

Muthana — who claims she was “brainwashed” by the anti-American Islamic terrorist group — was married to jihadis from Australia, Tunisia, and Syria during her stint as an ISIS bride. Her first two terrorist husbands died in battle while waging war against the United States.

Keep in mind that ISIS recruits these “brides” in order to breed more soldiers for their terrorist army. 

Also keep in mind that radical Islamists exploit America’s lax immigration laws to enter the country and nurture homegrown terrorists.

In 2015, Muthana allegedly promoted violence against the United States by urging people on Twitter to kill Americans on national holidays:

“Americans wake up! Men and women altogether. You have much to do while you live under our greatest enemy.

Enough of your sleeping! Go on drivebys, and spill all of their blood, or rent a big truck and drive all over them. Veterans, Patriots, Memorial, etc day. Kill them.”

Here what President Trump has to say to ISIS sympathizers:

The President’s unapologetic approach is being lauded by many supporters on social media, including his son, Donald Trump Jr:
