All ISIS-held Territory In Syria 'Obliterated Off The Map', According To White House

All ISIS-held territories in Syria have been eliminated, according to The White House.

In a tweet, it said the terrorist group 'has been obliterated off the map. Literally'.

The President of The United States, Donald Trump, also described the group as 'losers and barely breathing'.

In an article published on The White House website, it is claimed Trump's election 'marked the beginning of the end for the self-declared caliphate'.

But if you don't trust the impartiality of the site, there is also a link in the article that invites readers to 'see for yourself'... though that just takes you to the two map graphics below, shared by Trump himself.

But the 72-year-old didn't just share the maps on Twitter, he also presented them to the media outside The White House, claiming that it 'was a mess' when he took over and that the last 'tiny spot' of ISIS which 'will be gone by tonight'.

Earlier, this month Trump denied calling the CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, 'Tim Apple' - despite the fact the blunder was televised.

So it may be advisable to take his maps of the Middle East with a pinch of salt.
