In a meeting with victims of religious persecution on Wednesday, President Donald Trump repeatedly appeared to be unaware of many of the world’s most pressing humanitarian crises.
Trump met with more than two dozen survivors of religious conflict, a few of whom told their stories — and made impassioned entreaties for aid — directly to the president. As he asked questions of his guests, the president seemed to reveal a stark lack of familiarity with the fundamental details of problems faced by Rohingya in Myanmar, Uighurs in China, and Yazidis in Iraq — groups in crisis that his own administration has established positions and policies on.

On multiple occasions, Trump asked refugees among the group where the conflicts they were fleeing were taking place.
Mohib Ullah, a Rohingya man who had escaped violence in Myanmar, explained that he was staying in a refugee camp in neighboring Bangladesh and asked the president what his plans are to help his beleaguered people. Trump replied by asking, “And where is that, exactly? Where?”
It was unclear if Trump was referring to the country that Ullah had fled or was staying in, but Ullah repeated that he was staying in Bangladesh, and Sam Brownback, the US ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom, attempted to intervene by explaining that Bangladesh is “next to Burma [an older term for Myanmar]” and that “the Rohingya have been run out.”

The president replied, “Thank you, appreciate it,” and moved on without ever answering Ullah’s question.

The Trump administration’s official position is that Myanmar has engaged in “ethnic cleansing” of the Rohingya, a long-persecuted Muslim minority group, and it has imposed multiple rounds of sanctions (https://www.vox.com/world/2018/8/17/17718780/rohingya-us-sanctions-myanmar-security-forces-ethnic-cleansing) on its military leaders for their human rights abuses.

Trump Considering Ending Refugee Resettlement to U.S.





Since he frequently contradicts himself his statements can't be trusted at all, you have to watch his actions to even guess about his positions or plans.

They do:

Already, the Trump administration has set the lowest annual refugee cap, 30,000 admissions a goal, since 1980. This total is merely a numerical limit and not a goal.
The U.S., thanks exclusively (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/06/18/u-s-no-longer-top-refugee-spot-for-worlds-migrants-thanks-to-trump/) to Trump’s reforms, helped lower the total number of foreign refugees to less than 23,000 admissions (https://www.migrationpolicy.org/article/refugees-and-asylees-united-states) last year. This is a 76 percent decrease (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2018/12/31/trump-refugee-totals-2018/) in foreign refugee resettlement from President Obama’s 2016 totals that reached almost 100,000 admissions. Specifically, Trump has cut the Syria-to-U.S. pipeline of refugees — started by Obama — by more than 60 percent (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/06/21/trump-cuts-obamas-syrian-refugee-surge-by-more-than-sixty-percent/) thus far.
