Should Trump get credit for winning the war against ISIS?


>> PRESIDENT TRUMP VOWED WE WOULD FINALLY WIN THE WAR AGAINST ISIS UNDER HIS WATCH >> WE WILL FIGHT YOU

WE WILL DESTROY YOU AND WE WILL WIN! >> [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] >> I WOULD BOMB THE [BLEEP] OUT OF THEM >> [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] >> THIS IS AN EVIL, SADISTIC, MONSTEROUS ENEMY WE MUST KEEP THESE KILLERS OUT OF OUR COUNTRY >> [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> WE WILL KNOCK OUT ISIS SO VIOLENTLY AND SO FAST ISIS IS GOING TO GET ONE BRUTAL >> [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] >> AS HIS FIRST YEAR IN OFFICE CLOSES OUT, THERE IS EXTREMELY POSITIVE EVIDENCE WE MAY BE GETTING CLOSER THAN EVER ISIS LOST 98% OF ITS TERRITORY IN IRAQ AND SYRIA THERE ARE STILL MAJOR HURDLES BUT THIS IS ENCOURAGING NEWS

MY QUESTION FOR YOU, YOU KNEW YOU WOULD GET THIS FIRST >> I COULD SENSE IT >> SO, LOOK, TO ASK THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE, THEY WOULD SAY THAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WAS NOT TOUGH ENOUGH DIDN'T TAKE ENOUGH STEPS WE HEARD COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT

>> SOME OF THAT IS JUST POLITICS THE STRATEGY THAT LED TO A VIRTUAL DEFEAT OF ISIS IN SYRIA AND IRAQ IS LARGELY A STRATEGY THAT WAS LAID OUT DURING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION BY MILITARY COMMANDERS PRESIDENT TRUMP ALLOWED THE MILITARY TO USE MORE BOMBS WHAT IS THE STRATEGY GOING ISIS FIGHTERS WHO WILL GO BACK TO EUROPE AND GO ON LINE AND RADICALALIZE PEOPLE LIKE WE HAVE SEEN HERE IN THE US

THIS IS A GOOD STEP, BUT THE FIGHT WILL CONTINUE IN A DIFFERENT AND ALMOST MORE DANGEROUS WAY >> KATIE, I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE THREAT HERE DOMESTICALLY NEXT ONE OF THE REASONS, BY THE WAY, IS DUE, PART OF THE GO SLOW IS WHO WILL GOVERN SYRIA? >> RIGHT I WOULD NOT ARGUE THAT THE ISIS STRATEGY IS COMPLETELY ABOUT SYRIA

IT'S ABOUT GETTING BACK THE TERRITORY IN IRAQ THEY WERE DOWN PLAYED DURING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IT WAS NOT REPORTED THAT 80% OF THE CASUALTIES IN AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ HAPPENED UNDER OBAMA'S WATCH AS A RESULT OF THIS RULES YOU CAN GIVE PRESIDENT OBAMA CREDIT FOR THE STRATEGY, BUT GIVE CREDIT TO PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR LISTENING TO THEM AND GETTING THE JOB DONE THE THING GOING FORWARD WITH THE GLOBAL WAR ON TERROR, THERE IS A VICTORY NOW NATURE OF THE THREATS WE FACE

IT'S A HUGE VICTORY NOT ONLY JUST FOR GETTING RID OF ISIS BUT ALSO FOR THE MILITARY TO FEEL LIKE THEY CAN DO THEIR JOB AGAIN >> KENNEDY, WILL WE HAVE TROOPS IN IRAQ AND SYRIA FOREVER? >> IT FEELS LIKE AND AFGHANISTAN UNFORTUNATELY WHENEVER WE HAVE GOOD NEWS, YOU WONDER: WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP? WHAT IS THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF THE UNITED STATES? THERE ARE US

ENTER — INTERESTS THAT HAVE TO BE SECURED IN THOSE PLACES THE REALITIES OF GOVERNING ARE DIFFERENT KATIE IS RIGHT WE CAN'T HANG MISSION ACCOMPLISHED BANNERS, BECAUSE THIS CAN GO SO MANY DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS SYRIA DEVOLVED INTO CIVIL WAR

THE PRESIDENT HAS PEOPLE AROUND HIM WHO UNDERSTAND THE COST OF HUMAN LIFE AND THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THE PRESIDENT SAID THAT WITH INFRASTRUCTURE SPENDING WHY ARE WE SPENDING 7 TRILLION DOLLARS IN OVERSEAS WARS WHEN WE SHOULD BE SPENDING THAT IN THIS COUNTRY MAKING OUR BRIDGES AND ROADS BETTER? >> NATION BUILDING HERE AT HOME IS THE PHRASE TOM? >> I LIKE THE GENERAL! >> YOU ARE PRO-GENERALS >> [LAUGHING] >> I STAND WITH THE MEN AND WOMEN IN UNIFORM

ONE OF THE BIG ADVANTAGES OF THIS IS THAT IT DENIES ISIS AND THE PEOPLE WHO CALL THEMSELVES ISIS A REACTORING TOOL — RECRUITING TOOL THEY COULD SAY WE ARE BUILDING OUR OWN NATION IN THE DESERT THE PHYSICAL DEFEAT OF IT DENIES THEM A RECRUITING POINT THIS IS THE PATH ONLINE

>> THAT'S WHY WINNING IS IMPORTANT TRUMP IS ALL ABOUT WINNING AND IT'S TRUE WITH ISIS THE MORE WINS YOU RACK UP THE BETTER IT'S DOWN NOW WE WANT TO KEEP SNUFFING IT OUT AND COUNT UP THE VICTORIES

EVERYBODY HATES ISIS WE ARE TOGETHER ON THAT I GIVE PRESIDENT OBAMA CREDIT WHEN HE HAD SUCCESS IN THAT AREA I THINK IT WAS GREAT WHEN HE WENT BACK ON HIS WORD AND KEPT GUANTANAMO BAY I WAS GLAD HE BROKE THAT PROMISE

WHEN HE GOT IN THERE, THE FOREIGN POLICY AGAINST ISIS WAS NOT THAT DRAMATICALLY CHANGED UNDER PRESIDENT OBAMA I THINK PRESIDENTS DO TAKE THE ADVICE OF THE GENERALS >> WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA, THERE WERE FROM BOB GATES TO PEOPLE IN THE PENTAGON, WHEN THEY LEFT THE ADMINISTRATION THEY TALKED ABOUT HOW DIFFICULT IT WAS THEY WOULD LAYOUT PLANS FOR DEFEATING ISIS AND PRESIDENT OBAMA HAD HIS OWN PLANS ON HOW TO DO IT >> BOB GATE WAS NOT REALLY THERE

>> [OVERLAPPING TALKING] >> THE PROBLEM PRESIDENT OBAMA CAME UP AGAINST IS EVERY BOMB LOOKS LIKE A HAMMER THERE HAVE TO BE OTHER TOOLS >> [OVERLAPPING TALKING] >> THERE HAVE TO BE OTHER TOOLS TO GO AFTER THREATS >> [OVERLAPPING TALKING] >> NO, NO, NO, LISTEN HE RAN ON ENDING THE WAR IN IRAQ

>> WHICH CREATED ISIS BY THE WAR IN AMERICA'S HISTORY IN AFGHANISTAN HOME >> PRESIDENT OBAMA HAD 8 YEARS TO END THAT WAR >> AND HE DIDN'T WE HAVE TO LOOK AT AMERICAN DIPLOMACY AND ECONOMIC POWER

>> THAT DIDN'T WORK WELL WITH ISIS THE BOMBING OF ISIS >> [OVERLAPPING TALKING] >> WHAT BECOMES OF SYRIA? >> RIGHT >> IT'S GREAT TO HAVE ISIS, GREAT TO HAVE THE PEOPLE, EVERYONE HATES >> [LAUGHING] >> ISIS JOINING THE RANKS OF THE IRAQI GOVERNMENT IN PLACES WHERE IT IS NOT STABLE

THERE IS ALWAYS ANOTHER PROBLEM THAT WE WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH BOMBING MORE IN TERMS OF HOW WE MOVE FORWARD YOU TALKED ABOUT THESE GUYS POLICY >> I AGREE WITH MARIE

WE HAVE TO BE MORE MINDFUL THAN EVER OF THE DIGITAL COUNTER STIT — COUNTERFEIT THE PEOPLE WHO SCATTERED THEY ARE DOWN TO 1,000 YOU HAVE 44,000 — THEY HAVE GONE TO PLACES IN WESTERN EUROPE

THEY ARE RADICALIZING IN WAYS WE HAVE SEEN HERE IN NEW YORK CITY WITH TWO TERROR ATTACKS THIS YEAR >> IT USED TO BE YOU COULD TRACK SOMEBODY'S TRAVEL AND IT WAS A RED NAG >> WILL WE ORCHESTRATE REGIME CHANGES? >> PRESIDENT TRUMP CHANGED HIS VIEW ON SYRIA CAME IN, WHAT DO I CARE? HOW LONG DID IT TAKE TO START BOMBING SYRIA PRESIDENTS CHANGE WHEN THEY GET IN HERE

>> DO WE END UP CONFRONTING RUSSIA? >> WELL, MAYBE IF WE CAN GET THIS INVESTIGATION COME TO A CLOSE >> [LAUGHING] >> MAYBE TRUMP OFFICE MUELLER A DEAL >> IF YOU LISTEN TO THE LEFT, WE ARE NOT FIGHTING AGAINST RUSSIA WE ARE FIGHTING WITH RUSSIA WE ARE A PUPPET OF THE SOVIET REGIME AND DO WHAT PUTIN WANTS

ADMINISTRATION >> DO YOU THINK HE STASE? >> I DON'T KNOW I WON'T PREDICT THAT THE ADMINISTRATION IS VERY FOCUSSED ON IRAN AND MAKING SURE INBOUND >> EVERYONE'S DAYS ARE NUMBERED

>> LAST WORD? >> THE PROBLEM IS IN ASSAD IS
