Mattis right to disagree with Trump on Syria, top Pentagon official says

"Just months ago, 11 Jewish Americans were viciously murdered in an anti-Semitic attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh", Trump said, as he introduced SWAT officer Timothy Matson, who responded to the scene, and Judah Samet, a Holocaust survivor who also survived the attack.

"It should be formally announced sometime probably next week that we will have 100 percent of the caliphate", Mr. Trump told his audience of worldwide leaders in brief remarks.

Trump's State of the Union address on February 5 came as his administration braced for new political battles with congressional Democrats who took control of the House of Representatives in the November midterm elections.

Speaking to coalition partners, Mike Pompeo called the troop pullout "a new stage in an old fight" and said the USA would continue to lead the battle.

President Donald Trump told Americans on Tuesday his administration had accelerated talks for a political settlement in Afghanistan and would be able to reduce US troops there as negotiations advance to end America's longest war.

"If they are slaughtered by the Turks within reasonable proximity to our leaving, it will be a stain on our honor of this country that will persist ... in our ability to attract allies to assist us in future projects of this kind", King said.

Trump last week announced the usa withdrawal from a 30-year-old nuclear arms treaty with Russian Federation that banned the countries from possessing certain missiles.

"Above all, friend and foe alike must never doubt this Nation's power and will to defend our people".

"They used the internet brilliantly but now it's not so brilliant and now the people on the Internet that used to look up to them and say how wonderful and brilliant they are [are] not thinking of them as being so brilliant because they've been decimated", he said.

He added that territory under Isis control had been reduced to less than 20 sq miles (5,180 hectares) and would be recaptured by US-backed forces prior to the USA withdrawal, which he said would be carried out in a "deliberate and coordinated manner". The U.S. -backed, majority-Kurd militia halted its ground assault on ISIS's final shreds of territory last week.
