US, allies will defeat radical Islamic terrorism: Donald Trump

Amid the escalating debate over his immigration ban, US President Donald Trump on Monday delivered a strong message to radical Islamic jihadists, saying that America and its allies will defeat the “forces of death” who “worship destruction.”

Defending his order to ban citizens of 7 Muslim-majority nations, Trump said he will not allow them to get a foothold in the country. “We’re up against an enemy that celebrates dead and totally worships destruction. You’ve seen that,” the US President said.

During his first visit to Central Command which is responsible for an area that includes the Middle East and Central Asia, the former reality TV star said: “ISIS is on a campaign of genocide, committing atrocities across the world.”

The Central Command plays an important role in the US-led mission against the Islamic State terrorist group. Mr. Trump, now in his third week as the US President, visited the command centre on his way back to the White House after a three-day break in Florida. Trump made the comments after a lunch with troops from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines.

“Radical Islamic terrorists are determined to strike our homeland, as they did on 9/11, as they did from Boston to Orlando to San Bernardino and all across Europe. You’ve seen what happened in Paris and Nice. All over Europe it’s happening. It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported,” Trump said.
