Lead a Coalition to Defeat "ISIS"
Current Status: CompromiseAs of
"Work with our Arab allies and friends in the Middle East in the fight against ISIS.
Pursue aggressive joint and coalition military operations to crush and destroy ISIS, international cooperation to cutoff their funding, expand intelligence sharing, and cyberwarfare to disrupt and disable their propaganda and recruiting."
"ISIS" suffered major territory and battlefield losses from late 2016 into mid-2017, but it is not at all clear that the campaigns in Mosul and Raqqa deviated in any way from plans set in motion under Obama or that the role of coalition forces changed in any way under Trump. Even with major military setbacks, ISIS could still cause trouble as a terrorist organization; as of Summer 2017 no apparent administration policy or plan to deal with this transition - let alone build a coalition - has become apparent.
