Daesh is Obamas creation, so Trump is cleaning it up, and if you can't handle the truth crawl back to your hole....

I think ISIS and others will be quickly defeated now Hillary and company are out of the equation.
President Trump will stop the funding and training of terrorists/moderate rebels in Syria.
President-elect Donald J. Trump said Friday that he was likely to abandon the American effort to support “moderate” opposition groups in Syria who are battling the government of President Bashar al-Assad, saying “we have no idea who these people are.”
“I’ve had an opposite view of many people regarding Syria,” Mr. Trump told The Journal. “My attitude was you’re fighting Syria, Syria is fighting ISIS, and you have to get rid of ISIS. Russia is now totally aligned with Syria, and now you have Iran, which is becoming powerful, because of us, is aligned with Syria.”

Unless, you are a ISIS fan this is good news.
Mattis is on it.
‘Mad Dog’ Mattis Celebrating On Day One, Blows Up ISIS 31 Times
‘Mad Dog’ Mattis Celebrating On Day One, Blows Up ISIS 31 Times January 22, 2017 HeadlinesIslam5 Comments1 min read It was Secretary of Defense Mattis’ first day at the Pentagon and he has already hit the ground running. Mattis spent the day overseeing strikes against the Islamic State in both Syria and Iraq.
Details of the strike in the article indicate the missions were quite successful.
While the press lamented that ISIS could never be overcome, it looks like Mattis is cutting its head off. That's a start. Putting fear in ISIS from day one goes along way in demoralizing their troops.
Hopefully there wasn't collateral damage, but, there is nothing we are going to do to change ISIS fighters opinions. They hate our way of life and will for quite some time.
