President Trump Issues Warning to Islamic Terrorists Planning to Return to America
Amid 9/11 anniversary, Trump warns those plotting to harm the United States again - WATCH
President Donald Trump has issued a stern warning to Islamic terrorists who may be plotting to return to the United States to harm America.
Speaking during the 9/11 commemoration ceremony at the Pentagon on Wednesday, on the 18th anniversary of the attacks, the president warned those who wish to harm Americans, in no uncertain terms.
Trump acknowledged during his commemoration speech that he had scheduled peace talks with the Taliban at Camp David.
He confirmed, however, that they were called off after the group took responsibility for a suicide bombing in Kabul last week that left 12 people dead, including one American soldier.
“They thought they would use this attack to show strength, but actually what they showed is an unrelenting weakness,” Trump declared.

“If for any reason, they come back to our country, we will go wherever they are, and use power, the likes of which the United States has never used before,” the president said.
He clarified that he was not talking about nuclear arms, but vowed retaliation.
“They will never have seen anything like what will happen to them,” he warned.
“No enemy on earth can match the overwhelming strength, skill, and might of the American armed forces.”

The president also saluted the heroes of the military who continued to fight terrorism overseas.
“They have crossed seas, climbed mountains, trekked through deserts, and rushed into enemy compounds to face down the threat of radical Islamic terrorism,” he said.
He recalled the nearly 7,000 service members who have died in the fight against terrorism.
“We do not seek conflict, but if anyone dares to strike our land, we will respond with the full measure of American power and the iron will of the American spirit, and that spirit is unbreakable,” he said.
