Trump: 100% of ISIS Territory in Syria Retaken

U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday announced that 100% of the territory once claimed by ISIS in Syria has been retaken.

"We just took over you know you kept hearing it was 90%, 92%, the caliphate in Syria, now it's 100%, we just took over 100% caliphate, that means the area of the land we're just have 100% so that's good," Trump told U.S. troops at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska during a refuelling stop on his return trip from Hanoi.

Earlier on Thursday, the commander of Syrian Democratic Forces, Mazloum Kobani, said in a video released to the news media that the SDF would be able to announce "the complete victory over ISIS in a week."
