The United States President, Donald Trump has declared that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) will be eliminated from its last territory in Syria by Thursday.
Trump, who spoke at the White House, announced that the last of the Islamic State’s territory in Syria was currently being liberated by US-backed forces and that the situation would be resolved “by 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.
The U.S. leader then declared that by the end of Thursday, “the mission will be complete”.
“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.
