Iraqi refugee Nadia Murad to Trump: ISIS killed family. Trump responds: 'Where are they now?'

Iraqi refugee Nadia Murad to Trump: ISIS killed family. Trump responds: \'Where are they now?\'

WASHINGTON Nadia Murad, a Nobel Peace Prize recipient and refugee of the Yazidi region of Iraq, this week personally asked President Donald Trump to step in to help her community -- in an appeal that was emotional, almost desperate at moments.

But Trump seemed aloof throughout the exchange, which quickly went viral.

During a visit to the Oval Office, Murad recounted how although ISIS is gone, the Kurdish and Iraqi governments are fighting for control of the region indigenous to the Yazidi people. She called on Trump to intervene between the two governments.

Murad, who is in her mid-20s, survived sex slavery and torture from ISIS. She went on to be an advocate to end sexual violence in war and armed conflicts, which is how she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. The young woman, who was standing behind Trump for the meeting, was one of 27 survivors of religious persecution that visited with Trump on Wednesday.
