President Donald Trump of the United States has affirmed that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) will be eradicated from its last territory in Syria by Thursday.
Speaking at the White House, Trump, stated that US-backed forces had liberated the last of the Islamic State’s territory in Syria, adding that the situation would be resolved tonight.
While holding maps of ISIS’ territory in Iraq and Syria before and after his election, Trump pointed to a very small portion of the map that was currently being held by the terrorist group
“I brought this out for you because – this is a map of everything in the red, this was on election night in 2016, everything red is ISIS when I took over, it was a mess.
“Now, on the bottom, that’s the exact same: There is no red. In fact, there is actually a tiny spot, which will be gone by tonight.”
