One of the shining hopes of the Trump administration is the prayer that he will be the President who ultimately exterminates ISIS off the face of the planet. While President Obama could not do it, President Trump is certainly up to the task. He isn’t afraid to do what it takes to achieve that goal and he is already working towards it.
The White House administration has remained consistent in their promise to eliminate one of our greatest threats, ISIS. At first the President said he would keep the plan secret so that radical Islamic terrorists couldn’t use his words to try and figure out his plan of attack. But the President is slowly rolling out his plan to combat the Islamic State.
Some of those plans include pushing a regime change and ousting Bashar al-Assad in Syria. Aiding in the creation of an end-state in Syria that would prevent future terrorism that Russia and Iran can’t afford to combat; while simultaneosuly supporting Russian efforts to do the same. As well as helping to create stability instead of prioritizing humanitarian relief.
The President stated,
“we are going to convey my top generals and give them a simple instruction. They will have 30 days to submit to the Oval Office a plan for soundly and quickly defeating ISIS.”
After only a few weeks on the job Secretary of State Rex Tillerson appeared at his very first large international event that focused on collaborating on how to defeat ISIS. Tillerson emphasized this policy of combating terrorism as a primary administration issue. He said,
“the United States will increase our pressure on ISIS and al Qaeda and will work to establish interim zones of stability, through ceasefires, to allow refugees to return home.”
Unlike the past eight years President Trump is not going to passively sit by and watch as the Islamic State terrorizes the Middle East, Europe and the rest of the world. He understands that their reign of terror needs to come to an end. Instead of promoting policies of soft power like Democrats, which never work in the long run, the President understands that force will be required to achieve our end goal and his policy in fighting ISIS is reflective of that principle.
