Updated on

President Donald Trump said the U.S. will “be finished pretty soon” with the Islamic State terrorist group that has inspired attacks in America and Europe.

The military coalition combating the extremists “has recaptured nearly 100 percent of the territory once held by the terrorists in Iraq and Syria,” Trump told reporters during a cabinet meeting Wednesday. “We’ll be finished pretty soon with the ISIS situation in those two countries, and we’re making it very difficult for them to come here.”
