Pence wows U.S. will never allow ISIS to reestablish in Syria
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence claimed hours after a bloody attack in Syria on U.S. forces that Washington will never allow ISIS to reestablish their caliphate.
"President Trump and I condemn the terrorist attack in Syria that claimed American lives and our hearts are with the loved ones of the fallen. We honor their memory and we will never forget their service and sacrifice," Pence wrote.
"We have crushed the ISIS caliphate and devastated its capabilities," the U.S. Vice President stressed. "As we begin to bring our troops home, the American people can be assured, for the sake of our soldiers, their families, and our nation, we will never allow the remnants of ISIS to reestablish their evil and murderous caliphate – not now, not ever," he added.
Earlier on Wednesday, after news of the attack had spread, Pence had claimed in a Washington, D.C. at the Global Chiefs of Mission Conference that ISIS had been defeated, Daily Mail reported.
