How to use recruit in a sentence?

  1. John McCain:

  4. Peter Cook:

    His potential removal from the battlefield would negatively impact ISIL's ability to recruit foreign fighters -- especially those from Chechnya and the Caucus regions -- and degrade ISIL's ability to coordinate attacks and defense of its strongholds like Raqqah, Syria, and Mosul, Iraq.

  5. Bernie Sanders:

    Likewise, Bernie Sanders said Bernie Sanders campaigned for President Obama in 2008 and 2012( though Sanders in 2011 casually discussed the possibility of President Obama getting a challenger, Bernie Sanders did not ultimately recruit one).
