An American ISIS bride claims jihadis took her phone and sent tweets inciting attacks on President Obama to make her look bad.

Diplomat's daughter Hoda Muthana, who was born in New Jersey and grew up in Alabama, travelled to Syria to join ISIS in 2014 aged 20.

In January 2016 the Obama administration revoked her passport and earlier this year the US Supreme Court declined an appeal against that decision.

Hoda Muthana, now 27, is a prisoner alongside other foreign ISIS brides including her friend Briton Shamima Begum at Al-Roj Camp, northeast Syria.

According to Buzzfeed News, Hoda used Twitter under the name 'Umm Jihad' and the handle @ZumarulJannah.

On March 19, 2015, that account shared statements encouraging followers in the US to attack parades on national holidays and 'spill all of their blood or rent a big truck n (sic) drive all over them. Kill them'.

Another tweet posted on the same day read 'You can look up Obamas schedule on the white house (sic) website. Take down that treacherous tyrant!'.

Two weeks ago Hoda, who has a five-year-old son whose ISIS father was killed, denied she had anything to do with the tweets.

From what coverage she has seen of herself online the worst part was people thinking she sent the tweets.

Hoda Muthana has been trying to get back into the US for years without success.

In January this year, Supreme Court justices refused to hear her appeal to be allowed back. 

The justices declined without comment on to the appeal of the Yemeni diplomat's daughter.

Muthana left the U.S. to join the Islamic State in 2014, apparently after becoming radicalized online.

While she was overseas the government determined she was not a U.S. citizen and revoked her passport, citing her father's status as a Yemeni diplomat at the time of her birth. Her family sued to enable her return to the United States.

A federal judge ruled in 2019 that the U.S. government correctly determined Muthana wasn't a U.S. citizen despite her birth in the country.

Children of diplomats aren't entitled to birthright citizenship. The family´s lawyers appealed, arguing that her father's status as a diplomat assigned to the U.N. had ended before her birth, making her automatically a citizen.

The decision to revoke her passport was made under former President Barack Obama.

The case gained widespread attention as former President Donald Trump tweeted about it, saying he had directed the secretary of state not to allow her back into the country.

She said: 'The worst thing against me is this online Twitter stuff.

'I never had a platform to say this, but I have always been trying to tell people that those tweets were not mine.

'It either gets cut out of the media or it gets kind of butchered somehow and I never get a platform.

'It's not fair, the person that did bring me here had a wife who I become (sic) friends with.

'There was a group of us in a home and she would take our phones.

'She would take our phones and tell us because we've always thought about going back to our countries that we need to make ourselves look bad in the media so we don't have this persuasion to go back.

'That's basically what her agenda was, that's what their (ISIS) agenda is, that they have to portray you in the worst way so that you don't have these thoughts of ever wanting to return.

'She just took my phone and I thought she was just looking through my diary or something and then when she left and I looked through and I saw a bunch of evil horrible tweets that I would never have done because I wanted to stay off media, I never wanted to get myself out there you know.

'It was not only me that she did it to, it was several people and they were made to look really bad also.'

Hoda said she believed the social media tirades, which she alleges someone else posted, were the catalyst for the US revoking her passport and for the Trump administration to state she was not welcome back. 

She said: 'Of course that's exactly what Mike Pompeo was quoting about me is that I've threatened Americans, I've threatened military personnel.

'Some of the tweets I have read for the first time in this camp. I came here and somebody asked me, 'were you the one that wanted to kill Obama?' and I was like, 'What? No way'.

'I don't even know what the tweet exactly says and they (inmates) asked me this (about the tweets) when I first came here and I said, 'no way, that's not me' and I just brushed it off.

'Then when I looked up an article about me, I saw the tweet and I was just utterly shocked.

'Somebody like me who watched Obama winning in 2008, I actually had tears in my eyes. My family celebrated him winning.

'So for me to turn around and then tweet about it (him) many years later was not me at all.

'Then the fun one for me was the Obama administration was the one that took my citizenship away so this broke me even more.'

Hoda, whose father was a Yemeni diplomat, was born in Hackensack, New Jersey, but grew up in Virginia and Alabama.

She said: 'I lived like a very quiet life, I was very restricted from having a social life and when you're restricted from having a social
