The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump wants the Pentagon to come up with a new set of options for a tougher campaign against IS. On the other side, ISIS is also responsible for the December 2016 attack in Berlin, Germany, the March 2016 attack in Brussels, Belgium, the July 2016 attack in Nice, France and the November 2015 attack in Paris, France, in which many Americans have been Killed and injured, said the executive order.

"Both President Trump and President Putin are hopeful that after today's call the two sides can move quickly to tackle terrorism and other important issues of mutual concern".
"This is evil. This is a level of evil that we haven't seen".
He has called Daesh "pure evil" on more than one occasion. "They told us that victory is at hand and that God has sent the pig Trump as clear evidence of this", Abu Musab said.
