(Worthy News) - US President Donald Trump predicted Wednesday that the Islamic State group will have lost by next week all the territory it once controlled in Iraq and Syria.

He said the US will not relent in fighting remnants of the extremist organization despite his decision to withdraw US troops from Syria over the objections of some of his most senior national security advisers.

The president told representatives of a 79-member, US-led coalition fighting IS that the militants held a tiny percentage of the vast territory they claimed as their “caliphate.” [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]

  1. Again, a promise made and a promise kept. Most people are not aware that Trump made an agreement with Putin for Russia to take care of that part of the world so the U.S. could leave. And if Putin has to do anything to Iran to shut it down ......... well then, that would keep the onus off the U.S. now ..... wouldn't it?
