The Islamic State was defeated under President Donald Trump, but many argue ISIS was defeated under the previous administration.
Trump took to Twitter and asked, ”
Where is our “Thank you America?”
Never said when an attack on Syria would take place. Could be very soon or not so soon at all! In any event, the United States, under my Administration, has done a great job of ridding the region of ISIS. Where is our “Thank you America?”
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 12, 2018
Over 3 years ago ISIS had 40 per cent strong hold in Iraq and parts of Syria, but in December 2017 officials in Iraq said ISIS has been liberated and defeated.
Trump took credit for the defeat, but it’s still up for debate.
In the Tweet Trump also responded to the media preparing for a possible missile attack on Syria after many were killed in a gas attack allegedly by the Syrian government.
Civilian planes were evacuated from Syria and the airspace remains empty as Trump has no timeline on when he may fire the missile.
