Nobel Peace Prize winner Nadia Murad makes an emotional appeal to US President Donald Trump about the suffering of Yazidis while attending an event at the White House: "It's not about ISIS, it's about I'm in danger, my people cannot go back". The president, who promises to "look into it very strongly", asks Murad how her Nobel Prize came about. The US President was hosting survivors of religious persecution at the Oval Office.
