Former National Security Minister says Government must properly communicate the truth to US President Donald Trump

ISIS extremistsAmid international media reports that the conversation between this country’s Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley and US President, Donald Trump centered around T&T nationals who have become ISIS extremists overseas, one former National Security Minister says the truth is not being communicated properly.

A New York Times report has indicated that US President Donald Trump is concerned about T&T’s geographical location to the US, coining this country a breeding ground for extremists.

Speaking with News Power Now this morning, Gary Griffith said what needs to be effectively explained to the United States by this country’s government, is the fact that this country has signed on to the UN Resolution 2178.

He said the critical point that must be explained to the US President and other world leaders, is the fact that none of the Trinbagonians who have left this country, to take up extremist duty, have ever returned to Trinidad and Tobago.
